Original (12/13): This week’s UK software sales are in, and there are a couple of interesting Nintendo-related tidbits.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has seen its sales increase every week for more than a month. This week, the game went up 8 percent. It is expected to finish 2020 as the second biggest boxed game.

Immortals Fenyx Rising fell from #11 to #17. However, sales only decreased by 45 percent week-on-week. The Switch version also sold the best this past week, and that Switch edition is now the most popular version overall.

Original (12/6): This week’s UK software sales are in, which show that Immortals Fenyx Rising is off to a bit of a slow start for boxed sales.

Ubisoft’s new open-world game actually missed out on the top ten, instead debuting at #11. 35 percent of the game’s sales were on PS5 followed by 30 percent for the Switch version. GamesIndustry points out that Immortals Fenyx Rising’s launch sales are 40 percent lower than the recently-released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.

The UK sales report for November 2020 is in, revealing that Nintendo had a very good month overall.

PlayStation 5 outsold Switch, meaning Nintendo’s console came in second for only the third time in two years. However, hardware sales increased by 96 percent over the previous four weeks. Switch hardware sales are up 63.1% percent year-on-year.

We’ll also mention that Nintendo was the top publisher of the month. Games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft and Super Mario 3D All-Stars continued to perform well.
