ARMS is having an amazing launch so far as the new IP has made it into the heart of many Nintendo fans around the world. The game is so loved it sold over 100,000 units between the 16th and 19th just in Japan. This even beat out sales for other top fighting games like Tekken and Street Fighter. Given that ARMS is a completely new concept, the numbers are even more impressive, and it should also be counted that it’s the best-selling non-license fighting game in 7 years!
Hopefully this will be a positive reflection of sales around the globe for this game.
