Ultimate not only became the fastest selling title for the console, which in itself is the fastest selling console this generation, but it’s also the fastest-selling installment of the Smash Bros. franchise. Nintendo‘s hardware unit and dollar sales this year hasn’t been this high since 2011 and the company’s eShop sales have grown 105% over 2017.
