Another Nintendo Switch exclusive overtakes a multiplatform giant on the video game sales charts
Sony and Microsoft have sold more than 135 million PlayStation 4 and Xbox One units if we combine the two, so you'd think Nintendo Switch exclusives would have a hard time reaching the top spot of the boxed sales charts in the United Kingdom. Now we have another example of that not being the case.
It turns out that the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening pushed Borderlands 3 down to second place on the sales charts. Grezzo's latest title isn't even the only Switch exclusive on the podium, as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe raced its way to third last week. We're guessing the launch of the Nintendo Switch Lite helped with the latter.
Congratulations on your great week, Nintendo. Just don't expect to stay on top in next week's charts, as FIFA 20 launches this Friday. Still, you are free to enjoy the sight of this top ten from last week's sales:
- The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
- Borderlands 3
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Gears 5
- eFootball PES 2020
- The Division 2
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Spyro Reignited Trilogy
- Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
- NBA 2K20
