Nintendo has something to celebrate! Super Smash Bros for the Wii U sold a half a million copies across digital and retail channels during its US launch from November 21st to November 23rd.
This is a big deal as it makes Super Smash Bros for the Wii U the fastest-selling Wii U game in the US. The sales numbers now put it ahead of Mario Kart 8.
We are not sure how optimistic Nintendo can be for sales results this holiday season. The good news is that Super Smash Bros for the Wii U is apparently what current Wii U owners want and we believe it will drive some Wii U sales this holiday season, but it will still be an uphill battle.
