Brawl breaks NoA records

Brawl breaks NoA records

Super Smash Bros Brawl has gotten off to a flying start, selling over 1.4 million copies since its launch just over a week ago. In doing this, it's now recognized as the fastest selling game in Nintendo of America's history.

Records indicate that it's been selling at a rate exceeding 120 copies per minute. That's a lot of brawling. Nintendo's Cammie Dunaway commented:

"Super Smash Bros Brawl has made the leap from video game to cultural phenomenon. Game reviewers and the public alike praise its fun gameplay and extensive, inventive content".

Dunaway was quick to add that more big titles are on the horizon, in the form of Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit.

They're planning on this being the last one? With all the money they could be getting? No way, they've got to make more. Fastest selling American Nintendo game EVER? That's HUGE. Old Sakurai is probably drowning in dough by now.

SSBB is like the "Halo 3" of Nintendo. The only difference is that I like SSBB and Halo 3 is nothing compared to SSBB.

I can understand them saying Mario Kart will be a big hit, but honestly I don't see why they're making Wii Fit look so great. It might be fun, but I don't think it will be a -big- title. Just wait until Brawl gets over to Australia, I'll be one of the first in my city to get it (as I work at EBgames) and I'm sure it will sell just as great over here.

Wow that's great for Nintendo! But I don't think Wii Fit or Mario Kart Wii will be as successful as Brawl.

I'm surprised they kept that many in stock.

The storyline is great with a lot of gameplay. You can notice that they didn't just pop out game hoping it would be a hit. They have put a huge effort in this one. I really enjoy the music when playing, congrats Nintendo.

I never knew Brawl would do so well. I wonder what Wii fit will be like.

A new Brawl won't be made unless a new Nintendo console is made.
