Nintendo has announced Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has become the fastest-selling Wii U game in the US.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has officially dethroned Mario Kart 8 from being the fastest-selling Wii U game as it sold over 490,000 units in just the first three days of its launch. Considering it’s been six years since the last console release of Super Smash Bros., Nintendo claims demand is quite high for the game, which benefitted from the heightened awareness for the franchise due to the 3DS release of Super Smash Bros.
Our Super Smash Bros. expert Ozzie Mejia gave the Wii U version a 9 out of 10 and it seems like other reviewers have been enjoying the title as well as it currently sits at a Metacritic score of 93 while fans have given it a user score of 9.2.
Either way, if you own a Wii U or plan on picking one up, it’s probably a no brainer at this point that you should also be picking up a copy of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It’s just a darn good game.
