The Nintendo Switch is doing well globally but the company has often found it hard to gain traction in the United Kingdom. However, so far, Nintendo has shifted an impressive 300,000 Switch units in the United Kingdom. Games Industry is also reporting that Super Mario Odyssey is the best-selling release on the console so far in the UK, beating the wonderful The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Odyssey is the biggest Switch launch of the year, surpassing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In fact, its first week boxed sales are stronger than any Wii U title’s debut, too. The game also resulted in a 64% increase in Switch hardware sales week-on-week, which means the machine has now passed 300,000 console sales in the UK (sales figures supplied from retailers). Also, note that sales from the online UK Nintendo Store are not counted in these figures, so these numbers will have been higher than reported.
