Smash Bros. is big, that much is expected, but Ultimate has the potential to be the heaviest hitter yet. Not only is the game the fastest selling Smash Bros. game so far in the UK, but it’s also broke records in its home country, too.

Famitsu is reporting that 1.3 million copies have the game have been sold since the game launched on Friday (via Resetera). This is a new peak for the franchise – the previous top seller was Smash 3DS, which shifted 987,239 copies in its first week – and it also beats out every other Switch launch in the region by a rather significant margin.

It’ll be a little bit before we find out sales in the United States, which is potentially the biggest market of all, but if this trend continues Super Smash Bros. Ultimate could be giving Nintendo a very happy holiday season.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
