The UK software charts have come out for the week ending on March 17 and the Nintendo Switch finished relatively strongly, considering the competition. Kirby Star Allies, which was just released last week, finished second on the list and is the fastest selling Kirby game in the history of the franchise in the UK. Other Nintendo Switch games included on the list were Super Mario Kart Deluxe, finishing in fifth place, Super Mario Odyssey tying with PUBG for seventh place, and Breath of the Wild finishing in 10th place. That’s four games out of 10 included in the UK charts for this past week, and all of them save Kirby Star Allies, which came out this year. It was only beat out by a fellow new release.

Kirby Star Allies sales numbers are very surprising considering it’s not necessarily one of Nintendo’s premiere franchises. If it’s doing this well in the UK, I can’t imagine how well it’s doing worldwide. It’s an incredible multiplayer game and hopefully, the overall sales reflect that. With all the ports coming out from the Wii U, it’s important for Nintendo to have high-quality original content, and from all indications, they’ve succeeded spectacularly.

Mario Tennis Aces is next, and it looks to be one of Nintendo’s best sports games in years.
