Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Is Already a Massive Success

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is all but one single day old and while it’s already a massive success receiving a very positive response from critics, it’s also already showing very strong sales numbers. Today it is officially the best-selling item from the video game category to date on Amazon.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Though Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was only released yesterday it has landed itself firmly at the top of Amazon’s annual best-selling charts. Between the combination of pre-orders and the huge day one sales, it’s no wonder this Nintendo exclusive has landed in the top spot as the best-selling item in the video games category for all of 2018. While no sales numbers have been revealed yet, the Amazon website boasts the top selling items within video games right here


By taking the top spot this means that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has outsold every PS4, Xbox One, and Switch console, and accessory, every online card currency or subscription, and every other game this year. This includes some massive titles like GOTY winner God of War (24th), Spider-Man (21st), and Red Dead Redemption 2 (18th). If this success on Amazon is any indication of just how well their latest game will do, Nintendo certainly has a surefire hit on their hands. You can check out the top 10 items below.

It will be interesting to see if Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will end out the year in the top spot, though with Christmas and Boxing Day on the horizon, it’s a strong possibility.
