Sales of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are continuing to flourish, even after it became the fastest-selling Super Smash Bros. game and the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game to date. Meanwhile, Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee have slipped out of the top 10 in the UK charts. Read on below to learn more about recent game sales in the UK from the folks at GamesIndustry.biz:
Super Smash Bros Ultimate was one of the only games to dip in boxed sales in the Top 20 this week, which is to be expected for a recently released game (it only arrived three weeks ago). The mascot fighting game dropped 24 per cent in sales and slips to No.5. However, its sales have now surpassed Splatoon 2 to become the UK’s fifth most successful Switch game, and it’s only be around three weeks.
The other Switch game in the Top Ten is Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, which falls two places to No.7 after an 11 per cent sales dip. Nintendo’s game has benefited from some hardware bundling this Christmas. The game is the No.1 selling Switch game in the UK by a large margin, ahead of Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild, Pokemon Let’s Go and Smash Bros.
Nintendo exclusives may have been the highest performers this week, but Spider-Man from Sony continues to perform incredibly well. The PS4 game sits at No.8 and is the fourth best-selling new game released this year. Spider-Man’s sales rose 62 per cent week-on-week.
