Smash

In just a couple of weeks' time, on 7th December, a little game called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming out. If you've seen the absolutely monstrous amount of news and coverage surrounding the game so far, you probably won't be all that surprised to hear that it's already starting to break records left, right and centre.

Nintendo has shared a short new trailer for the game - featuring a nice little quote from ourselves, we hasten to add - sharing a couple of incredibly impressive facts in the process. As you can see for yourself, Ultimate has now become the best pre-selling game in the Super Smash Bros. series, and the best pre-selling game so far on Switch.

A week ago today, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! started to appear in the wild, similarly smashing the record to become the fastest-selling Switch game to date. Usually, a betting gaming fan would place their money on Pokémon outselling Smash by a comfortable distance (as this has historically been the case thanks to the Pokémon brand's immense pulling power), but things might actually be pretty tight this time around.

If Pokémon: Let's Go managed to sell over three million copies in less than a week, can Smash beat that? It's a tough challenge to take on, but if any game's going to achieve it, Ultimate's the one.

Go on then, cast your votes in the comments below. Can Smash outsell Pokémon's impressive week one figures?
