Despite the popularity and power of the new current Gen kings, PS5 & XBox Series X|S, the Switch Sales continue to be solid. With five games among the top 10 selling titles for the week of 08/01/2022, it’s clear that the Switch is going nowhere soon. This being the UK, FIFA was of course in the top 10, coming in at number but most of the others were a serious shocker. Probably the most notable of these entries was Ring Fit Adventure climbing the ranks from 11th to 6th.
- MARIO KART 8 DELUXE
- FIFA 22
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Call of Duty Vanguard
- Ring Fit Adventure
- Marvel’s Spiderman: Miles Morales
- Pokémon Brilliant Diamond
- Just Dance 2022
- Grand Theft Auto V
Seeing Nintendo Switch sales dominate the sales top sales like this bodes well for the platform going forward. This is especially true for those anticipating the impending release of a Nintendo Switch Pro. With such well selling games in a vibrant market like the UK it makes sense that Nintendo will continue to support the Switch with new models, games and accessories.
With 3 models for the Switch already in the market and such great sales, there’s no excuse for us not to get more. Among the top 20 games on the GFK Chart 11 were switch games. Add to that, the Nintendo Switch was also the best selling console of December 2021.
