Thanks to GamesIndustry, we have new insight into the UK gaming market for May 2021.

Compared to last year, Switch sales have fallen – but keep in mind that the COIVD-19 lockdown and launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons provided a significant boost in 2020. Switch sales are actually up 60 percent year-to-date compared to 2019. As for May specifically, Switch sales were behind those of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Miitopia, a new release for Switch in May, came in at #19. It’s possible that the title could have charted higher had Nintendo reported digital sales.
