Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was December’s best-selling title in many parts around the world so it comes as no surprise that it was top in Japanese digital sales for January 2019 with Kingdom Hearts III. This week’s issue of Famitsu shared an update with digital sales of games that sold through January 2019. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]
