According to Amazon.com’s best sellers list, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has become the best selling title of 2018 so far.
2018 has been an interesting year for video games, so far, but the biggest selling game on Amazon will not even be out yet for another four months! We have had some belters already with many spectacular sequels and awesome brand new IPs but none of these future classics come close to the mega-behemoth Nintendo beat ‘em up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Of course, it’s worth noting that this doesn’t represent the market as a whole, in fact, this list is only representative of Amazon.com, a similar list on Amazon.co.uk doesn’t even have Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the top 50 (however, Spider Man is sitting happily in 13th place).
Having been burned in the past by failed deliveries, stolen packages, and missed release dates I will be downloading my version from the eShop. I remember when the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection was due to come out, I had been anticipating it for months, I even took the day off work to play the tactical espionage action nonstop. No deliveries came eventually, I got so bored of waiting I downloaded the digital version and just sent back the psychical after it arrived the following Monday!
