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.
