‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ smashes its way to No.1

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ debuts at No1 with the biggest ever launch for a Switch game, bigger than the recent combined launch of the Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee titles. 

‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ remains at No2 while ‘FIFA 19’ drops from top spot to No3.  Switch console hardware bundling alongside the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate helps give ‘Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’ a boost, up from No9 to No5. 

New entry ‘Just Cause 4’ parachutes in at No6, while the release of ‘PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ on PS4 from Sony, propels the title back in to the chart at No22.  The release of the Switch version of ‘Sega Mega Drive Classics’ also pushes it back in to the Top 40, at No33.
