Smash Bros. Ultimate has punched its way to the top of the UK charts, with the best ever launch for the series and the best ever launch for any Nintendo Switch game.
In its first weekend of release, Smash Bros. Ultimate sold more physical copies than Zelda, Mario, and even the combined sales of Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee.
It’s also the best UK launch for any game in the Smash series – more than 300 per cent higher than the game’s Wii U version, and more than 60 per cent higher than Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii.
