I am quite sure that if you are a Nintendo Wii U owner, you would have given Super Smash Bros. a go by now. In fact, this particular title has broken plenty of records along the way, just like how Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona has bulldozed his way into the world of football’s record books. This extremely popular franchise has move over 14 million Super Smash Bros. games sold in the U.S. alone, and it also carries a Metacritic score of 93, which would make it the highest-rated original game of this generation – sharing the top spot with the Super Mario 3D World title from last year.
It is also the eighth Wii U game to have a Metacritic score of 85 or higher and a user score of 8.5 or higher, and carries the mantle of being the fastest-selling Wii U title ever in the U.S. market. The title which it dethroned? It was yet another first party Nintendo game, Mario Kart 8. Throughout the three day period of November 21 to November 23, it managed to move over 490,000 physical and digital units combined, now how about that? It would be interesting to see how the holiday season will shape up for Nintendo and their first party titles, not to mention this coming Black Friday. [Press Release]
