Super Smash Bros. 3DS sales—both digital and physical—have surpassed one million units since the game launched in Japan two days ago, Nintendo announced.
madness! Nintendo is the absolute handheld king! I am not a SSB fan but Nintendo definitely deserve all credit. Wii U version of this game will also sell big!
Ive never owned Nintendo console or handheld, but I must congratulate them with this achievement. I think its pretty much granted that X1 wont outsell WiiU this year, thanks to Hyrule, SSB and Bayo2. I think Nintendo should focus more on handhelds, thats where they shine the most.
And screw the home console edition. I understand Nintendo wants big cash, but come on, you have a platform that needs to sells better.
The Wii U version is going to sell huge this holiday season with Amiibo. This was a great idea to sell this version early on, then get every one hyped for the main course this winter. Its about making money, not having one platform "sell better" so screw the other one. 3DS and Wii U both need this game. Watch you'll see. The Wii U version is going to do big numbers. It will launch right before Black Friday.
I really don't know I I'm going to buy a Wii U when SSB for Wii U launches or if I should wait for a redesign of the console? tough decision, I really want Smash Bros. Wii U :(
Just buy the Super Mario 3D World bundle this holiday. I doubt they are going to do a redesign anytime soon. Nintendo usually doesn't redesign their home consoles. Or you can buy a Wii U from Nintendo refurbished for $200 if you're looking to save some cash. And these refurbished Wii U's are basically new. Nitnendo has very high standards for refurb products. https://store.nintendo.com/...
@Gravity_DoGG "redesign of the console"? When was the last time Nintendo redesigned a home console? Answer: never.
@Nerdmaster - actually they redesigned the NES late in its life cycle to mimic the top loading feature of the SNES and to give the controller more rounded edges. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
3DS is bound to smaller but still no small game compared to the fully fledged home console version, I'm glad they've done the 3DS version first if it was ready besides it gives us a taster of the main event and besides did we really want both these epic games launching on the same day... Not really ;) as for leaving the home console market you better hope not most good home console ideas have come from nintendo over the years, you lose them you'll lose a Lot, innovation, fun, new ways to play. Nintendo are class through and through
Metallox...your just not smart. * Wii U versions is going to sell like crazy, and be the better, definitive version. Do you even pay attention to past history ?
Woah! Congrats Ninty.
That's great! I wonder how well it'll do in the West? Who cares, I just want to play it!!!
3DS domination incoming , this and Pokemon is going to kill all gaming system out there . Sign.....3DS is unstoppable
And that's from a game selling on just one single system. Come the holidays, the Wii U version is going to get a boat-load of sales, too, due to having more music, new stages, more controller options, and much more stable online due to being able to go wired. Print dat money, Nintendo. Print it, and recycle it into some new games. We're all eager to see what's next!
That's ridiculous. Just the kind of start Nintendo was hoping for. With sales like that early on, we could be seeing SSB top MH4 or Pokemon X/Y sales figures..
Nintendo OWNS japan yet again!
