US NPD - Smash Bros. Ultimate Sets New Launch Month Dollar Sales Record
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has set a new launch month dollar sales record for a platform exclusive in video-game history, exceeding that of the previous record holder, 2010's Halo: Reach - https://twitter.com/MatPiscatella/status...0385536000

Compared to the Smash Bros. series previous best seller, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ultimate exceeded its packaged software launch month dollar sales by over 70%. It was also December's best selling title, and the 5th best selling 2018 title overall, not including digital sales, which are not tracked by the US NPD.

This, along with other releases and sales in 2018, caused Nintendo to be the highest software revenue generating publisher of the year since 2009.


Neat to see Ultimate do so well, especially when I would have expected RDR2 to be the likely choice for a 2018 game to beat Halo: Reach's record.

It's almost hard to believe that this is the same company that put out the Wii U not too many years ago. Kudos to them on finally turning things around for themselves (and at the benefit of us gamers as well).
While it's unsurprising that Smash turned out to be the best seller of December, it placing 5th overall for the year is pretty impressive as well, especially considering Digital sales weren't taken into account.

PSA: Some people have reported save corruption when using Piranha Plant in All Star Mode from what I've seen on Twitter. No idea how widespread or definite it is, but if anyone is wary about it maybe hold off just to be safe.

On that note, has anyone played as Piranha Plant yet? Or seen their victory animation at least?

Piranha Plant corrupting save data is the ultimate form of karma for them wasting such a valuable roster spot on such a piece of trash 'character'.

Except the karma hurts the players who had no choice in the character choice being made. I also doubt that any particular character stops anyone else getting in. If Nintendo wanted them in that much, they'd do it regardless of whether Piranha Plant exists. If they're not putting someone in, that's a decision they're making independent of what other character decisions get made. If they feel someone is worth the time and resources, they'd do it.

Sure, it sucks if Nintendo don't find someone worth it, but there's going to be more to it than just "lol lets annoy people with a plant".

Didn't know about the All-Star mode thing for Piranha Plant. Will be avoiding using that then. I haven't used that mode at all yet for any character. XD

Tried out Piranha Plant, but only in Practice and not in a game. Fought against it though. Just can't get over how it moves, seriously. Most of the attacks I can see it doing though. Just...it's movement is so bizarre. LOL
I think Piranha Plant has an extra move no other character has, if what I've seen is correct from a video I watched. Haven't tried it myself yet, but if it's crouching and an opponent attempts to footstool/jump on it, Piranha Plant will nip them.
