Today, Nintendo has detailed its plans for Insomnia61, the biggest gaming festival in the UK. Taking place 25th–28th August 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham, the biggest draw for fans will likely be Super Mario Odyssey, which will be playable at Nintendo’s booth. Attendees can also try out other Switch games, such as Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and Pokken Tournament DX.

In addition to that, Nintendo is also putting a big emphasis on competitive gaming. Nintendo is hosting a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tournament on Friday, August 25th, and a Splatoon 2 tournament on Saturday, August 26th. If you want to take part in them, you can sign up for them right there on the show floor. Finally, Nintendo is hosting the Nintendo Players UK ARMS Invitational on Sunday, August 27th. This one isn’t open to everyone, but instead will feature 16 of the UK’s best ARMS players.

Splatoon 2 just missed out on the top spot on this week’s UK charts. It came in second, following Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy. On the whole, Splatoon 2 is off to a good start.

You might be interested to hear that Splatoon 2’s first week sales outsold the original. The sequel shifted 59 percent more copies. Splatoon 2 is also Switch’s third biggest launch in the UK after Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

New Switch stock entered the market last week. The move increased sales of Mario Kart by 60 percent and Zelda: Breath of the Wild by 20 percent.
