New sales data is in from the UK for the month of February.

Even though the month was slow, February 2018 was actually more successful for boxed games retailers than the year prior. Software sales increased to 1.2 million games sold while revenue generated from these games rose 6% to £36.5 million.

We can thank Switch for the increase, as the console accounted for 14.5% of all the games sold last month. Also, Nintendo placed second in the publisher rankings with a 13.3% share of the market. In 2017, Wii U had a 1.8% share of the market, and Nintendo was the fourth-ranked publisher.
