Nintendo has dominated the UK charts throughout September in terms of both software and hardware sales, a new GamesIndustry.biz report reveals.
GfK Entertainment data suggests that more than 1.07 million physical games were sold in the UK last month, with 41.7% of those being Switch titles. The majority of those Switch games were Nintendo-published titles, too, with the Big N's mascot names accounting for 32.3% of the country's physical game sales throughout the month.
Super Mario 3D All-Stars unsurprisingly came out on top, managing to narrowly outsell the heavily marketed Marvel's Avengers which released on rival platforms. You can see the UK's top 20 physical games for September 2020 below.
