Super Smash Bros. for 3DS sells more than 2.8M globally

With the release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS in Australia, Europe and North America, sales for the game topped 2.8 million, Nintendo announced this morning.

"Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is already in the hands of more than 2.8 million people worldwide, and the road ahead looks great," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing. "Nintendo's holiday software lineup is more than impressive, and our amiibo figures start a new chapter in the world of Nintendo interactive entertainment. With so many great experiences available, this holiday season is going to be an amazing time to be a Nintendo fan."

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS went on sale in Japan on Sept. 13, Oct. 3 in Europe and North America and Oct. 4 in Australia. The sales figures, Nintendo added, are company estimates.

The news comes less than a week before Nintendo is set to hold a Super Smash Bros. for 3DS national tournament in New York. The Oct. 11 tournament will feature the 16 players who won regional tournaments around the country this past weekend. The tournament will begin at 6 p.m. ET and be broadcast live on Nintendo's YouTube and Twitch channels.

Earlier today, Nintendo announced a Nov. 21 release date for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and more details on the amiibo figures and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
