A late release didn’t stop Nintendo’s platform fighting game from reaching the top.
Despite releasing on December 7, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate was number one on Amazon’s list of 100 best-selling video game items in 2018.
The simple list charts the most popular video games and game-related products sold on Amazon in the US, including traditional games, though it’s rare to see those at the top spot.

In fact, Nintendo dominated the top ten, with the basic Switch bundle claiming the sixth spot, and the Switch Pro Controller coming in at eighth.
At number four, Amfilm’s Nintendo Switch Tempered Glass Screen Protector proved more popular than all other games sold on Amazon in 2018, save of course for Smash.
Keep in mind that Amazon’s list only takes into account single SKUs, so the total number of copies sold for multi-platform games like Red Dead Redemption 2 or Black Ops 4 may be higher overall than Smash.
Speaking of platforms, the digital gift cards for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live also fared well, but it’s only once you step out of the top 10 do you see 2018’s other blockbuster releases like the PS4’s Red Dead Redemption 2 (# 14), Spider-Man (# 19), Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (# 27), and God of War (# 28).
