Several big releases had come and gone throughout September but it took Super Mario 3D All-Stars to finally unseat Marvel’s Avengers from its top spot in Gfk’s UK physical sales charts. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the collection of ports is now the third biggest UK launch of the year with The Last of Us Part 2 and Animal Crossing: New Horizons ahead of it. It’s also the fifth fastest selling Switch title ever in the region and the 15th biggest Nintendo game launch in history.
Marvel’s Avengers only dropped to second place though with sales seeing a decline of 46 percent week-on-week. Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to hold on in third place while Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 went from second to fourth place. The latter saw a decrease in sales by 54 percent week-on-week.
New titles this week included WWE 2K Battlegrounds in sixth place and eFootball PES 2021 Season Update in ninth place. Overall, not a bad week for new releases. Check out the top ten best-selling games in the UK for the week ending September 19th below.
