Not only is the Super Smash Bros.

The Nintendo Switch console has become the fastest-selling video game system of this hardware generation through 21 months, that's before selling over three million units of Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo today revealed the Switch has now sold over 8.7 million units at the 21-month mark in the USA, more than both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One did when they were the same "age". "We're looking forward to delivering more excitement and smiles to our fans in the coming year and beyond". Ultimate game the fastest selling Nintendo Switch game, but it's also the fastest in the franchise's history. Ultimate game, other recently released games that continue to make a splash include Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, which together total 2 million units, and Super Mario Party at 1.4 million.

Further to this, Nintendo has announced that five out of the ten best selling Nintendo home console releases have released on Nintendo Switch.

Since its 2017 launch, the console has sold over 8.7 million units, which is more than the other current gen consoles at the same point in their life cycles.

Nintendo's eShop sales have also seen a huge bump this year. The game also sold 3 million units in just 11 days in the U.S., according to gamesindustry.biz. Along with strong sales at retail, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has sold more than 3 million units in less than two weeks.

The report states that from the Nintendo Switch's launch back in March 2017 through November 2018, the Nintendo Switch has sold more than 8.7 million units.

Nintendo isn't quite at the top of the current-gen hardware pile yet (Sony's head start has allowed them to reach almost 90 million PS4s sold, close to the Wii's lifetime of 101.6 million), but they're getting there quickly.
