The number one game for Christmas in the biggest video gaming market in Europe has been revealed and it is Red Dead Redemption 2. The game will will be under most gamers Christmas trees tomorrow. Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch is holding steady at number five and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is following close behind at number seven.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate was one of the only games to dip in boxed sales in the Top 20 this week, which is to be expected for a recently released game (it only arrived three weeks ago). The mascot fighting game dropped 24 per cent in sales and slips to No.5. However, its sales have now surpassed Splatoon 2 to become the UK’s fifth most successful Switch game, and it’s only be around three weeks.
The other Switch game in the Top Ten is Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, which falls two places to No.7 after an 11 per cent sales dip. Nintendo’s game has benefited from some hardware bundling this Christmas. The game is the No.1 selling Switch game in the UK by a large margin, ahead of Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of the Wild, Pokemon Let’s Go and Smash Bros.
