Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is “punching its way into the record books!”
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has become the best pre-selling Super Smash Bros. and Nintendo Switch title ahead of its release next month.
Announced by Nintendo Versus, a short gameplay trailer breaks the news that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is “punching its way into the record books!”
This news comes only a day after The Pokémon Company revealed Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! have sold three million copies in one week and have become the fastest selling Nintendo Switch titles since the system’s launch.
With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launching on the Nintendo Switch on December 7, this record may be in jeopardy if these pre-sale estimates hold or are exceeded.
It won’t end there, as a post-launch plan has been put in place that will see five sets of DLC – all with a character, stage, and music tracks – released by February 2020.
There will also be a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass that will include all DLC for $24.99 USD. Additionally, all who purchase Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before January 31, 2019, will receive Piranha Plant as a new character for free.
Besides fighting their friends, Smash players will be able to look forward to the World of Light campaign which will allow players to unlock characters, solve puzzles, fight bosses like Monster Hunter’s Rathalos, and much more.
We’ve put together a guide of everything you need to know about the World of Light story mode and a breakdown of all the different ways you’ll be able to play/purchase Super Smash Bros. Ultimate when it’s released on December 7.
