    I love ya Europe, but those are some weird priorities. Why would Battlefront sell more than Zelda after all that EA loot box nonsense?

    • andyva

      UK =/= Europe. Nintendo games sell a lot better in France, Germany, Italy… than in the UK.

      UK loves PlayStation more, and Battlefront II was heavily bundled. That’s why it sold a lot in the UK.

      • StrawhatEevee

        Makes sense. I didn’t think about the bundle aspect. I think most European charts focus pretty heavily on GTA/CoD/AC/BF, though unfortunately. I could be wrong, but that’s what I remember seeing. Little disappointed in the UK at a minimum!

        • Ezereal

          I’m French and clearly the UK is different from continental Europe. France is the biggest euro market for Nintendo.
          Nintenso sold 700,000 Switch in the UK and 911,000 in France (all-time record).

          • StrawhatEevee

            I stand corrected. Thanks for the insight. ^^ Still judging the U.K. a little bit, though, even if I’m mainly joking.

  • Jacob Groves

    At least Nintendo made more money then Sony and Microsoft for exclusive gaming wise hahahahaha.
