According to the latest statistics, the Nintendo Switch Sports game easily topped the weekly game sales chart in the UK in the first week of its release.
After Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort games, this
is the third largest game in the series in terms of sales in
its first week in the UK. The two games were sold almost
identically at the time of release. However, the Nintendo
Switch Sports sold less than half of what those games
sold in their first week of release. On the other hand, the latest
game in this series has performed significantly better than its
predecessor, the Wii Sports Club. The game, which was
released only in physical form in 2014, failed to reach the top 40
of the table and only ranked 13th in the chart of the
best-selling Wii U games at the time.
Compared to other recent games in the same genre, the Nintendo Switch Sports more than doubled the Mayo Superstars, almost eight times that of Just Dance 2022, and It also sold more than six times what Ring Fit Adventure sold in its first week. Of course, the first week's sales are not a good measure of the success of these games. Not all of the games listed sold very well in the first week, but continued to grow. In fact, it seems that the audience of these games is usually in no hurry to experience them in the early days of the offer. As a result, the success of the Nintendo Switch Sports will depend on how well it performs in the coming months and even years. A percentage should suffice for second place. Warner Bros.'s new game topped the list for three consecutive weeks. Also, with the increase of PlayStation 5 consoles in the market, Gran Turismo 7 has reached the third place after 152% increase in sales and Horizon Forbiden West has reached the fourth place after 52% increase in sales. Kirby and the Forgotten Land also returned to the top games of the week after a 31% increase in sales, and finally Cricket 22: Official Game of The Ashes is ranked 26th after its release on the Nintendo Switch console.
