Physical game tracker GfK Entertainment has released the latest UK sales charts. This GfK Top 10 is for the week ending June 26, 2021. It’s no exaggeration to say that this week’s charts are great for Nintendo. Of the 10 games on the chart, 6 are exclusive to Nintendo Switch.
One of Nintendo’s games, Mario Golf: Super Rush, defeated Ratchet & Crank: Lift Apartment and reached the top of the charts just days after the game began in the area. According to GamesIndustry, Mario’s sports titles rarely have major launches, but game launches were relatively modest with the Switch release. Week 1 sales were 17.5% higher than Mario Tennis Aces in 2018, but it’s clear that the Switch installation base was much smaller at the time. The complete chart data is below.
