Already expected to make splashes upon its arrival, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has become the fastest selling game for the Nintendo Switch with three million copies sold in just 11 days.

Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Doug Bowser stated “We are thrilled to see such a strong reaction from consumers in the second holiday season for Nintendo Switch. We’re looking forward to delivering more excitement and smiles to our fans in the coming year and beyond.”

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.

The console even broke U.S. sales records this Black Friday.
