Mario Odyssey IMG

Super Mario Odyssey has achieved yet another significant milestone, this time in the United Kingdom. Following its release in October last year, the Switch title has since shifted more than 500,000 physical copies locally. It's quite a feat for a game that's only been available for just over a year.

As pointed out in the tweet below by Game Industry publisher Christopher Dring, Odyssey is now the second Nintendo Switch game in this location to sell more than half a million copies physically. The only one ahead of it is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

This is rather impressive when you consider games released well before Odyssey like Splatoon 2 and system launch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild haven't shifted this amount in-store.

Odyssey is what Nintendo defines as one of its evergreen titles, which are titles that maintain sales consistency and are often sold alongside new systems. Earlier in April this year, it was revealed Odyssey had sold more than 10 million units worldwide. We also know it has been right at the top of the global Switch sales charts in more recent times. At the time, this figure covered more than half of the Switch userbase.
