Nintendo recently released their sales numbers for the new Super Smash Bros. games on both the Wii U and 3DS.


Both titles together came in at a beyond impressive 9.58 million, collectively, as of December 31, 2014.

The 3DS release by far had the lion's share of the numbers there, with 6.19 million in units moved, nearly doubling the Wii U's release at 3.39 million, but both numbers are beyond impressive.
