We’ve shared plenty of news on the sales success of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate during the last couple of days, so let’s add another one to the pile, shall we? Japanese business newspaper Nikkei reports that worldwide sales for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reached 5 million copies during its first week on the market. This includes both digital and retail copies. This lines up with Famitsu’s report that the game sold 1.2 million copies in Japan alone during its first week, the game becoming the fastest-selling Nintendo home console game of all time in Europe and Nintendo’s report that the game sold 3 million copies in the US in 11 days.
