All sorts of sales data has been provided for Super Mario Odyssey over the past few weeks. However, one country we haven’t heard about specifically is Germany. That has since been rectified as BIU today handed out its sales awards for October.

Super Mario Odyssey earned a gold award from BIU having sold over 100,000 copies. As we know, the game hit the market at the very end of the month, so that start isn’t too shabby.


FIFA 18 will be released on Switch tomorrow, September 29th, which marks the series’ return to Nintendo consoles after several years of absence. However, it seems like not all Switch users will actually get to play it tomorrow. As GoNintendo reports, German retailer Media Markt has told those who ordered the Switch version of the game that it won’t be arriving this week. Furthermore, the Switch version is currently unable to pre-ordered at several stores, such as Amazon or Gamestop, or had its release date changed to “coming soon” on Thalia.

It’s currently unknown what the issue seems to be, or why it’s only affecting the Switch version of the game. We also don’t know yet if the digital version is affected as well. Its release date is still listed as September 29th on the eShop in Germany, though we won’t know for sure until tomorrow.


Amazon Germany has started taking pre-orders for a bunch of stuff announced during last night’s Nintendo Direct. These include the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Collector’s Edition and Pro Controller, Poke Ball New 2DS XL, Super Mario Odyssey Switch pouch, and Kirby Battle Royale. Everything is up here.
