New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe UK Sales Outsell Wii U Launch
Nintendo UK has much to celebrate this week, as New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has managed to leap to the top of the all-format charts.
What’s far more impressive is that GamesIndustry.biz reports that sales of the Mushroom Kingdom adventure were 56 percent higher than when it was first released as a Wii U launch title way back in November 2013 – a tally that excludes digital sales.
It wasn’t alone in its success, with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (No. 5), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (No. 6), Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! (No. 12), Super Mario Party (No. 15), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (No. 19), Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee! (No. 24), Super Mario Odyssey (No. 26) and Splatoon 2 (No. 34) all remaining in top 40.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
