The weekly UK retail video game sales chart for last week is in and it saw Nintendo Switch games dominate the chart.
Nintendo Switch titles made up nine out of the top ten selling games for the week with Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise taking the top spot. Monster Hunter Rise is the second biggest launch in the franchise in UK history trailing only Monster Hunter World that released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017. That game was on multiple platforms versus Rise which is only on the Nintendo Switch.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars took the No.2 spot after seeing a huge sales increase week-on-week. Nintendo has said they will be pulling the game from the Nintendo eShop and physical copies won’t be made after March 31st so this is most likely people trying to get them a copy before it disappears.
Some other new titles released last week but failed to make it into the top ten. Those games were It Takes Two from EA, Marvel’s Avengers on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, and Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town on the Switch. You can see the full top ten below.
