Launched on December 7, Nintendo managed to sell more than three million copies of Super Smash Bros.

Meanwhile, Nintendo also revealed the Switch has been the fastest-selling current-gen console in the USA for the past 21 months, having sold more than 8.7 million units in that time.

The NPD Group on Tuesday also revealed that the Switch has become the fastest-selling console of this hardware generation. Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing said "We are thrilled to see such a strong reaction from consumers in the second holiday season for Nintendo Switch". While Nintendo doesn't provide the numbers explicitly, it does point out that Odyssey has sold more than 12 million units, so if we apply some quick maths, we're looking at upwards of 21 million copies, which is absolutely huge, particularly given it only came out a little under two weeks ago. Ultimate are all part of the wide range of games for everyone on Nintendo Switch.

With 74 playable fighters, over 100 stages, more than 800 music tracks and much more, Super Smash Bros.

Not only is the Switch selling faster than the Xbox One or PS4 in America, but Smash Bros.

The company did share promising news, that being that Nintendo hardware unit and dollar sales are their highest annual since 2011. Total European sales over the game's first three days were nearly 30% higher than Mario Kart Wii, which went on to ship more than 37 million copies worldwide. So many games were released previous year that Nintendo had very little left for afterwards and it wasn't really until Pokémon: Let's Go and Super Smash Bros. 2018 titles such as Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee!, and Super Mario Party have helped bolster sales.

Sales of the Switch aren't the only thing Nintendo is celebrating.
