Last week, I reported the Japanese sales data on Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Well, the North American sales data is finally in on Brawl: 1.4 million copies sold in its first week on store shelves!
874 thousand copies were sold on March 9th alone, and by March 16th that number increased to 1.4 million. That’s an average rate of 120 copies per minute.
While that doesn’t break any sales records in the industry, it’s the fastest selling game in Nintendo’s history, and on its own is still a pretty big number, even if it’s still a far cry from 3.3 million in 12 days.
