When Switch launched last year, the system managed to reach the 300,000 units sold milestone in the UK during Super Mario Odyssey’s release week. Fast forward a year later and you could argue that the console is having even more success.

Over the previous three weeks, Switch sold 200,000 units in the UK. For those who are interested in comparisons, the platform sold roughly 130,000 units during the same period in 2017.

Switch sales in the UK currently sit at around 1.4 million.

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.
