Nintendo can once again be delighted with the sales performance of their titles in the UK. The newly-released Monster Hunter Rise topped the charts while Super Mario 3D All-Stars sales spike 276 per cent in the games final week.

Nintendo Switch games have recorded an impressive sales performance yet again. According to the GfK data , eight Nintendo Switch titles are on the Top Ten best selling games list in the UK for the week ending March 27th.

As expected, Monster Hunter Rise, which just released recently has topped the chart but some older Switch titles have also seen impressive sales increases. For example, Super Mario 3D All-Stars sales skyrocketed 276 per cent since the game is getting discontinued from sale this week. The publisher have been promoting the imminent delisting of the product, which has clearly resulted in massive sales boost. 

Here is the GfK Top Ten for the week ending March 27, 2021: 

  1. Monster Hunter Rise
  2. Super Mario 3D All-Stars
  3. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  4. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury
  5. Minecraft Dungeons
  6. Minecraft (Switch)
  7. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
  8. FIFA 21
  9. Luigi's Mansion 3
  10. Super Mario Odyssey
