UK: Mario Maker 2 is biggest Nintendo launch of the year, Bloodstained first week Switch sales more than PS4/Xbox One combined
New data is in from the UK regarding a pair of prominent Switch games.
First up, Super Mario Maker 2 is the biggest Nintendo launch of the year having surpassed New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It was also the top seller in the UK last week.
Super Mario Maker 2 appears to have boosted several other Nintendo games. Mario Kart 8 climbed from #8 to #5 with a 39 percent increase in sales week-on-week. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate came in at #10 for a rise of 14 percent in sales. Finally, Zelda: Breath of the Wild went up 66 percent in sales and charted from #22 to #11 – it would have made the top ten if it sold another 28 copies.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night also came out on Switch last week. This resulted in an increase of 60 percent in overall sales of the game, having gone from #17 to #9 on the charts. Additionally, Bloodstained for Switch sold more in its first week than the PS4 and Xbox One versions combined in their first week.
