Super Smash Bros. Ultimate managed to sell around 1.2 million copies in its first three days in Japan. Dengeki now provides a bit of extra information on the game’s performance. Sales tracking indicates that Smash Bros. Ultimate sold through 75% of its initial shipment.

Given how the game has sold thus far, Dengeki has Smash Bros. Ultimate selling two million copies before we reach 2019. Year-end sales from Christmas and New Year’s should contribute to steady sales over the next few weeks.

Famitsu has published an official report on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s debut sales in Japan. In just three days, the game sold 1,238,358 copies. Digital sales are not included, but units from physical download cards are.

As expected, Smash Bros. Ultimate provided a huge boost to Switch hardware sales last week. Famitsu reports that the system moved 278,313 units. The previous week, Media Create had Switch at 120,546 units sold.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had the best debut for the franchise in Japan, beating out the openings for all previous entries.

Curious as to how much Switch has sold in the UK? Since launch, the console has moved roughly 1.4 million units.

If you’re interested in comparisons, PlayStation 4 has sold six million units in the UK in five years. Xbox One is just under five million.

The UK has been a notoriously tough market for Nintendo to crack in the past. However, we are seeing Switch games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate having their best series debuts in the country.

Thanks to NPD’s Mat Piscatella, we have more classic data concerning the United States. Piscatella offered up his latest list, this time revealing the top 10 best-selling GameCube games of all time.

The lineup is as follows:

Though data isn’t entirely final, early reports indicate that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may have sold somewhere around 1.3 million copies in its first week in Japan. The information appears to come from Morgan Stanley based on Famitsu-recorded numbers.

We should have final data by Wednesday. If Famitsu’s early number holds up, it would be the largest opening ever for a Nintendo published game in Japan outside of the Pokemon series. Additionally, it would be the best debut for a Smash Bros. game yet.
