Mario Kart 8
Platforms: Wii U, Nintendo Switch
It’s basically Nintendo and PS4 in the top five.
Just like in the UK, F1 2018 debuted at the top of the sales charts in France the week of its release (weekly sales charts for games in France are staggered by a week). And, very unlike the UK, in spite of F1 2018 shooting its way to the top, the top five charts continue to be dominated by Nintendo and Nintendo games, with three out of the top five games being Switch exclusives.
This includes Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at second place, Super Mario Odyssey at fourth place, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at fifth place, with Shenmue 1 and 2 HD debuting in third place. The top five is all we get from France, so that’s all the information that we have—but at the very least, it is clear that F1 and Shenmue had good launches there, and that Nintendo’s evergreen games continue to do strongly (as would be expected from them).
