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
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
