Thanks to the success of Super Smash Bros., it’s now the fastest-selling Wii U game ever in the U.S. Mario Kart 8 previously held this record.

Nintendo has also confirmed that more than 14 million Super Smash Bros. games have been sold in the U.S. alone.

Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing, said of today’s news:

“The Nintendo holiday is off to a great start, but there’s a lot of work left to do and a few more surprises in store for our fans. With great deals coming on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and great content like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker launching next week, Nintendo will offer shoppers the best combination of fun and value this holiday season.”
