Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has topped 2.8 million copies sold worldwide. This is one in a series of announcements made by Nintendo today.
The company hopes that Super Smash Bros. success on the 3DS is an omen for more good things to come. Scott Moffit, executive vice president of sales and marketing, stated, “Nintendo’s holiday software lineup is more than impressive, and our amiibo figures start a new chapter in the world of Nintendo interactive entertainment. With so many great experiences available, this holiday season is going to be an amazing time to be a Nintendo fan.”
Indeed, it looks like it will be an exciting season for Nintendo fans. Apart from Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Pokemon Alpha Ruby and Omega Sapphire, Amiibo, and Toad Treasure Tracker will all be launching in the coming months before the new year.
