'Super Smash Bros.' (ALL) Fastest-Selling Wii U Game In North America

Super Smash Bros. is unlike regular fighting games, instead of winning by depleting an opponent's life bar, Smash Bros players seek to knock opposing characters off the stage.

Mario! Link! Samus! Pikachu! All of your favorite Nintendo characters are back, along with plenty of new faces, in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the next entry in the beloved Super Smash Bros. series. Up to four players can battle each other locally or online across beautifully designed stages inspired by classic Nintendo home console games. With a variety of control options and amiibo compatibility, the timeless Super Smash Bros. battles come alive. 

According to Nintendo’s internal sales figures, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is now the fastest-selling Wii U title ever in the U.S. market (dethroning Mario Kart 8), with more than 490,000 physical and digital units combined sold during the three-day period of Nov. 21 through Nov. 23.

“The Nintendo holiday is off to a great start, but there’s a lot of work left to do and a few more surprises in store for our fans,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With great deals coming on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and great content like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker launching next week, Nintendo will offer shoppers the best combination of fun and value this holiday season.”

Key Features:

  • Compete with classic players from the Super Smash Bros. series, along with new challengers like Mega Man, Little Mac or newly announced Palutena, the Goddess of Light from the Kid Icarus games. For the first time, players can even compete as their own Mii characters.
  • Use a variety of control methods during the high-energy and action-filled battles, including Nintendo GameCube controllers – the longtime controller of choice for hard-core Super Smash Bros. players.
  • Customize move sets when playing locally or online with friends.
  • Connect with amiibo for added fun.
  • Experience the beauty of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U in stunning HD, a first for the series.
  • Fight against friends and family locally or online, or battle random challengers from all over the world online in “For Fun” or “For Glory” modes.
