Ultimate has brought the fight to 3 million United States players in the 11 days since its release and become Nintendo Switch's fastest-selling game. This performance should receive an additional boost from the December release of the Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo says that "five of Nintendo's ten best-ever Australian and New Zealand home console software launches are now on Nintendo Switch". "Nintendo Switch owners have a lot to look forward to in 2019, including new games in the Animal Crossing and Pokémon series, Yoshi's Crafted World, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and more".

Japan will also increase its order for F-35A jets, which take off and land on conventional runways, to 105, the government said. The measure emphasizes Japan's need to counter potential threats from North Korea and China as it enlarges its navy.


Those hardware sales, however, don't account for the launch of Ultimate, which Nintendo claims will give the Switch extra impetus as the holidays continue. That should come as a surprise to no one, though - Smash Bros 4 and Brawl were among the top-selling titles on each of the last three Nintendo consoles. With 74 characters to choose from, who are you maining? In its first 21 months of availability, Nintendo has sold more than 8.7 million systems in the United States, outpacing all other current-gen systems through the same point in their life cycles.

Nintendo's eShop sales have also seen a huge bump this year. From its launch in March 2017 through November 2018, Nintendo Switch has sold more than 8.7 million units, outpacing USA sales of all other current-generation systems at the same point in their life cycles.
