Smash

Last Friday's release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has simultaneously broken records for Nintendo and made a huge impact in the UK charts. Not only did it sell enough copies to snag number one this week, but it has also become the fastest-selling Super Smash Bros. game of all time.

Launch sales for Ultimate are 302% higher than those achieved by Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and 233% higher than Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. As always with chart figures, it's worth noting that only physical sales are counted for these statistics.

If this level of success wasn't enough, Ultimate has also become the fastest-selling game on Nintendo Switch, even managing to outsell the combined efforts of both Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! in the UK - the titles which managed to also claim that record just three weeks ago.

Here's a look at this week's top ten all formats chart (physical sales only):

1. (New) Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
2. (2) Red Dead Redemption 2
3. (1) FIFA 19
4. (4) Battlefield V
5. (9) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
6. (New) Just Cause 4
7. (3) Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
8. (6) Spyro Reignited Trilogy
