Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is off to a fantastic start in the United States, racking up 490,000 units sold in its first three days. The sales numbers overtook Mario Kart 8 as the previous fastest-selling Wii U game, and Nintendo hopes to ride the momentum all the way until Christmas. Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime said US pre-orders surpassed record numbers, so it's not surprising to hear of early success for the game title.

Nintendo offered a statement that said the 2014 Christmas shopping season is "off to a great start" for the company, but said Nintendo still has "a lot of work left to do."

 

The Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. will be released in Japan, Europe and Australia next month - preparing Nintendo for potential major success this holiday shopping season.
