It was almost inevitable that Super Mario Maker 2 would launch last week to critical and commercial acclaim, and the latter has been proven already thanks to the latest phsysical sales reports from the UK’s UKIE/GfK coming in, courtesy of GamesIndustry.biz.

Super Mario Maker 2 took the top spot for last week, with the biggest Nintendo launch this year, toppling New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe’s January debut at last, and almost doubling the number of copies sold compared to the original’s Wii U launch according to Eurogamer. Fellow Switch exclusives Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are also hanging onto their top ten positions.

Third party multiplatform titles like Crash Team Racing and Bloodstained are doing well too – with the latter finding most success physically on the Switch, selling more than the PS4 and Xbox One versions combined, despite performance issues.

Here’s the full list:

    1. Super Mario Maker 2
    2. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
    3. F1 2019
    4. Judgment
    5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    6. Red Dead Redemption II
    7. Grand Theft Auto 5
    8. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
    9. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
    10. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
