The news comes from official charts and market research data supplier, GfK Entertainment (thanks, GamesIndustry.biz), which has compiled a new, cross-platform report on physical game sales in 2019. Despite being almost six years old, Grand Theft Auto V has also been hugely popular this year, being one of the top three best-selling games in five European countries.
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has been favoured in Austria, France, Germany, and Switzerland, while Denmark, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden and the UK saw FIFA 19 perform better.
It's worth noting that the data only includes physical sales as several major publishers - including Nintendo - don't share digital sales numbers.
Are you one of the many who picked up one or both of these games? What do you think will be the best-selling game when the year's done and dusted? Tell us below.
