There have been many fighting games released throughout the history of gaming. Some of them have gone on to become classics, some have just faded into obscurity. There have been a handful that have endured over the years, and one of them is Nintendo’s Super Smash series. It is super popular with fans.
In fact, according to the latest figures, it looks like the latest title in the franchise, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has managed to achieve the honor of being the best-selling fighting game of all time. The game has sold 15.71 million copies to date which is extremely impressive.
Here is why it is so impressive. Units sold is not a combination of different versions created for different consoles, but rather, it is entirely sold on the Nintendo Switch. Also, it managed to achieve this in less than a year, where the game was initially released on December 7th, 2018. And it managed to beat Capcom’s Street Fighter II title which has held onto the number one spot forever.
The game will no doubt continue to sell very well, given the frequent updates and since Nintendo also recently launched the Switch Lite, giving gamers another platform to play the game on.
