Pokemon Sword and Shield sales drop by 58 percent and 65 percent respectively.
The latest UKIE/Gfk charts for UK physical sales are in and Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is once again on top. It took the pole position over EA’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order which remained at second place this week. Meanwhile, Pokemon Sword went from first to third in the standings with sales dropping by 58 percent.
Pokemon Shield saw a similar drop, going from third to fifth place and sales dropping by 65 percent. Pokemon Sword still managed to eke out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PS4 in terms of single format sales. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the Nintendo Switch in general has been doing very well thanks to Black Friday boosting hardware and software sales.
For instance, Luigi’s Mansion 3 was in sixth place followed by Mario Kart 8: Deluxe in seventh. Even Mario and Sonic at the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 managed to hit ninth place, moving up a spot in the past week. Check out the full UKIE/Gfk top ten for the week ending November 23rd.
