Curious as to how much Switch has sold in the UK? Since launch, the console has moved roughly 1.4 million units.

If you’re interested in comparisons, PlayStation 4 has sold six million units in the UK in five years. Xbox One is just under five million.

The UK has been a notoriously tough market for Nintendo to crack in the past. However, we are seeing Switch games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate having their best series debuts in the country.

Super Mario Odyssey has reached a new milestone in the UK. Propelled by the latest sales coming from Black Friday, the game has surpassed 500,000 copies sold.

Switch only has one other title to hit the same mark, and most would probably be able to guess what it is. Indeed: it’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Note that digital sales aren’t included here. If they were, Super Mario Odyssey probably would have surpassed the 500k mark a little while ago.

The week of Black Friday sales has come to an end, and GamesIndustry has an early report on the latest data from the UK.

Last week, several Switch titles saw big increases. Zelda: Breath of the Wild rose the most by 111%. Super Mario Odyssey and Super Mario Party were right behind having increased 110%. Finally, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was up 98%. Along with Black Friday week, new Switch adopters from Pokemon’s release likely played a factor.

Speaking of Pokemon, after their launch week, sales for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee understandably fell. The two dropped 43% and 55% respectively.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee were some of the biggest game releases this past week. The first region to report sales is the UK, where the two titles did pretty well all things considered.

An initial figure puts the Pokemon: Let’s Go games at 116,000 copies sold – not including digital. Pikachu was apparently the more popular version by quite a bit.
