Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury was the best-selling physical game in Europe during the first half of 2021, new data from GfK reveals. It led the way in Austria, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, and the UK. The game was also a top finisher in the other countries that were surveyed.

FIFA 21 was the second best-seller after Mario. In third was another Switch title: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Nintendo’s racer held nine top three finishes based on European countries surveyed.

We’ll also mention that Minecraft and Grand Theft Auto V sold well, as they had six and five top three finishes respectively.
