Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D Was The Single Best-Selling Game Of February In The UK

feb_uk_video_game_best_sellers

We know that The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D has been performing well in the United Kingdom, thanks to the charts we post every week. Now it turns out that Majora’s Mask 3D was the sixth best-selling game during the month of February in the United Kingdom. The game managed to beat The Order on the PlayStation 4 which was released on February 20th. Majora’s Mask 3D was the single best-selling game of February and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate didn’t perform too badly at all.

It was a big month for Nintendo. The platform holder released two new versions of its 3DS console, and the remake of cult favourite The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask was the single best-selling game of the month. This – and Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate – helped the 3DS nearly double its market share in terms of revenue and units sold.

2014 UK Retail Software Sales By Platform Doesn’t Make Good Reading For Wii U

uk_retail_sales_software_2014

JVM over at the NeoGAF forums has received sales data for the United Kingdom during 2014. Remember, the United Kingdom is the biggest video game market in the whole of Europe. Sales for software on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One seem to be extremely healthy as UK games clamour for that next generation experience. However, it’s Nintendo platforms that have taken a hit. The Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U software sales aren’t anything to write home about despite several high-profile releases for the Wii U. Let’s hope things change this year.
