Mario's Presence in UK is 'Smallest in the World'

"We need to promptly improve this situation"
It's become apparent from the weekly UK software charts that Nintendo titles are struggling to make a significant impact in the country. Today's financial report statements from Nintendo revealed an interesting statistic about the sales of Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 throughout Europe, and the news wasn't all good.
Nintendo produced all-format top 20 software charts for January to March in Germany, France, Spain and the UK. In the first three countries both Mario 3DS titles earned top 10 places, which is a decent achievement. In the UK, however, Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land were 13th and 14th respectively, making it the poorest performance for the 3DS big hitters.
It's not great news for Nintendo UK, and no doubt the company as a whole will be working hard to improve those results for the next financial quarter.
