Super Mario 3D All-Stars, the recently released Switch compilation of 3D Mario platformers, has been a big sales success in the UK. 3D All-Stars has had one of the year’s best launches in the country, and ranks fairly high in Nintendo’s all-time list, too.
According to Gamesindustry.biz, 3D All-Stars was the best-selling physical game in the UK last week, tracking ahead of Marvel’s Avengers (which saw a sales decrease of 46% compared to the previous week). It was the third biggest opening for any game this year in the country, behind only The Last of Us: Part II and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Nintendo’s bundle featuring HD ports of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy for Switch is the third biggest game launch of the year in the UK, after Sony’s The Last of Us: Part II and another Nintendo staple, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
