Nintendo now has a few different mobiles games available. How did they do in 2018? Sensor Tower provides a closer look in its analysis today.

According to Sensor Tower, Nintendo’s mobile offerings generated almost $117 million worldwide in Q4 2018. That’s a 47% rise compared to the same period the year prior. On the whole, Nintendo collected $348 million in 2018, which is an increase of 15% year-over-year.

New information has been published that reveals the UK’s best-selling games of 2018. Not only that, but we have actual concrete data for each title.

One of the more interesting tidbits concerns Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. That title ended up selling more in 2018 (458,675 copies) compared to 2017 (341,531 copies).

New data has arrived from the UK based on sales generated in 2018. Boxed video game sales revenue came in at £770 million, which is a decline of 2.8%. There were also 22 million titles sold physically for a drop of 7.1%.

We can thank Switch for preventing a bigger decline. The system’s software sales were up 90.1% year-over-year and revenue rose by 73.4%. Switch was the only platform with increased software sales compared to the previous year.
