Nintendo and Super Smash Bros Ultimate Dominated E3 Twitter Talk

Smash Smash Smash, everything was Smash.

So, who "won" E3? Depends on your perspective. Going by sheer volume of Twitter chatter, Nintendo and the reveal of Super Smash Bros Ultimate got everyone talking more than any other topics or games at the show.

The official Twitter blog posted its statistics from E3 in its E3 wrap-up earlier today. There were 15 million E3-related tweets last week, with the highest spike in conversation happening during the Nintendo Direct presentation. The United States tweeted the most about E3, followed by Japan, the United Kingdom, Spain, and France.

Xbox was the most tweeted-about topic behind Nintendo, followed by Super Smash Bros and Fallout. Kingdom Hearts, The Elder Scrolls, Death Stranding, and Fortnite were also tweeted about frequently. As for new game reveals, Super Smash Bros Ultimate received the most tweets, followed by Kingdom Hearts 3, Fallout 76, The Last of Us 2, and Death Stranding. Ridley's announcement as a new Smash character generated a great deal of buzz, as did the reveal of The Elder Scrolls VI—which is kind of funny, because we received a shot of a mountain range, and not much else.
