Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was officially released to the public on December 7, 2018. In other words, we've had a full year to experience and play the latest entry in the series.

Throughout the game's lifespan, it's become extremely popular. It's no wonder that it was reported to sell 15.71 million units and was the second most downloaded game in 2019, after Fortnite. Unsurprisingly, people talking about the game on Twitter has caused it to be quite the trending topic in 2019.

According to Twitter's stats, the Super Smash Bros. series was the tenth most talked about video game series over the last year. Although Melee's continued popularity among its hardcore crowd likely contributed to this, these stats were most certainly influenced by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's release.

The games that were discussed even more frequently than Smash were Fate/Grand Order, Fortnite, Final Fantasy, Identity V, Grandblue Fantasy, Ensemble Stars, Monster Strike, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and Minecraft.

Notably, Grandblue Fantasy is a series with a fighting game that's currently in development. Cygames' Grandblue Fantasy Versus will be releasing on February 6, 2020. Being that there's a lot of hype surrounding this game, we'll have to see how much of the Grandblue Fantasy crowd transitions into the fighting genre.

It's also worth mentioning that EVO 2019, a yearly fighting game tournament, also ended up being the second most talked about eSports event on Twitter. Only LoL Worlds 2019 was a topic that trended more often.
