Here’s an extremely surprising stat for Switch owners in the UK. While Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons are the first and second best-selling physical release for Switch in that region, the third place title is now a third party game.

Believe it or not, Minecraft is now the third best-selling physical Switch release in the UK. That means the game has beaten out physical releases for brands like Mario, Pokémon, and Zelda. Again, this figure only points to physical units sold, but it’s still a phenomenal achievement for Microsoft!

While that's very impressive, you also have to bear in mind that it's half the price of Nintendo's own titles. Minecraft is a behemoth, it's sold ~240 million copies across all platforms.
