Super Smash Bros. 3DS Tops 1 Million Sold In Two Days In Japan


It only took two days for Nintendo to sell more than 1 million copies of Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS in Japan alone. The handheld version of the game, the first portable entry in franchise history, just released in Japan over the weekend on September 13.

That impressive number includes physical copies sold at retail as well as copies downloaded through the eShop. Super Smash Bros. 3DS joins Pokémon X & Y, Monster Hunter 4 and Yokai Watch 2 as the only 3DS titles to sell that many copies within their first week on the Japanese market.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS releases on October 3 in both Europe and the U.S.

Too excited to wait that long to play? Remember, if you’ve met certain qualifications – reaching Platinum Status on Club Nintendo, registering a Nintendo 3DS product and having notifications enabled – you should be eligible to partake in an early demo of the game. And if you are not eligible, each person who is eligible gets three extra demo codes, so make friends with someone who has codes to spare!

Otherwise, you can just wait until September 19 when all Nintendo 3DS users will gain access to the demo. Unlike the early access version which has no play time limit, this all-access version of the demo can only be opened 30 times. Both demo versions are restricted to five playable characters including Mario, Link, Pikachu, the Animal Crossing Villager (YES!) and Mega Man.

If you somehow don’t already have a 3DS, starting September 18, select retailers will have Super Smash Bros. 3DS kiosks for you to try out the game.
