Smash Bros Brawl sells 1 million in 11 days

Super Smash BrosHotcakes, what?

Super Smash Bros Brawl has become the fastest selling Wii game to date, reaching the "1 million sold" mark in just 11 days on Japanese store shelves. More precisely, Reuters reports that the game has shifted 1.08 million copies, citing numbers given by Japanese magazine publisher Enterbrain.

It took Nintendo’s Wii Fit seven weeks to reach that milestone, said Enterbrain. Wii Sports required 11 weeks to do the same.

One has to wonder just how quickly the game will sell in North America, where Smash Bros. is arguably a much hotter property than in Japan.

Whatever the outcome, let this serve as a reminder to Nintendo: give fans what they want, and they will give you lots of money.
