Smash Bros fastest selling Wii U game, 490k in two days

Nintendo announced this morning that Super Smash Bros for Wii U is the fastest selling Wii U game in history.

In the US alone they sold 490k copies of the game in just two days, between November 21st and 23rd. That’s impressive to say the least.

It appears Reggie and company were right when they said they had more pre-orders for Smash than Mario Kart 8. Hopefully the Wii U sells more units than the so-so 225k it sold in November 2013 in the US. I’d imagine Smash could push it above 300k or so.
