UK software sales for the week ending Oct. 15th, 2022
How does Mario Kart keep doing it?!
It seems the weekly UK software sales are now coming in a week later than they used to. At least when they arrive, we get the full top 40 right away. If you’ve been wondering how things went in the last 7 days, you can get the breakdown for UK software sales for the week ending Oct. 15th, 2022 below.
It’s not only impressive that Mario Kart is #2 but also that Nintendo has around a third of the top 40 selling games.
I'm willing to bet sales of everything bar FIFA 23 were awful. I really wish they'd give us numbers, where they do in Japan, you can see it's a similar story there. Only replace FIFA 23 with Splatoon 3. Splatoon 3's sales were almost that of the 29 other games in the chart combined. Switch hardware sales in the UK are now in 3rd place, in the US they're second. In Japan, Switch is number 1 in hardware, but sales are falling. I'd like to see a more powerful Switch model next year launching with BOTW2.
