Thanks to GamesIndustry, we have new insight into the UK gaming market for April 2021.

Switch was the best-selling console of the month. GamesIndustry reports that Nintendo’s platform and the PS5 “are currently neck-and-neck in terms of sales during 2021, with Xbox Series fast catching up.”

The site further adds that Nintendo accounted for almost a third (32.5 percent) of all physical games sold in the UK last month. Switch titles from all publishers made up 49.6 percent of the market. Even though it was only available for two days of the reporting period, New Pokemon Snap was the best-selling game.

Here’s a look at the best sellers of April (note that Nintendo doesn’t report digital sales):
