Smash Bros. Ultimate takes #1 in the UK sales chart, fastest-selling Smash Bros. game and Switch release overall so far in UK

For the week ending Dec. 8th, 2018 in the UK, Smash Bros. Ultimate takes the #1 spot on the software charts. Not only that, it did so in style! Check out all the UK details on this week's sales below.

- fastest-selling Switch game released so far
- sales are 302 percent higher than the numbers achieved by Super Smash Bros for Wii U
- sales are 233 per centhigher than Super Smash Bros for 3DS
- sales are 62.5 per cent higher than Super Smash Bros Brawl
- Mario Kart 8: Deluxe sales saw a boost of 45 percent week-on-week


We had gotten some of this information from Nintendo last month.


I wish they would give us figures instead of embellishing things by using percentages. It means very little, sure the last line says MK8D sales are up 45% on last week.

Ultimate is launching at the same time in the Switch's lifecycle as it did on Wii U. But the Switch has a far higher install base, plus the 3DS version launched before Wii U and sales were divided between both platforms.

Let's see how it performs there long-term or even next week. Anyone and everyone had the game pre-ordered long ago. It'll sell well worldwide no doubt, but I prefer hard numbers to massaged percentages.

Congratulations Nintendo! said in Smash Bros announcer voice
