The project ranked third in terms of launch in the country compared to other games in the franchise – it was ahead of Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort. Sales of the last two at the start were almost identical, while the novelty did not even reach half of the performance of previous games.
True, Nintendo Switch Sports managed to bypass the sales of the previous part of the series for WiiU – Wii Sports Club. In 2014, she could not even get into the top sellers in Britain. In addition, Sports performed better than Mario Party Superstars, Ring Fit Adventure and Just Dance 2022 – she overtook the latter by almost eight times.
However, analysts note that the first week of sales is not very important for games of this type, since they achieve big records “in the long run.”
Sales LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker. Saga” at the same time, they dropped by 25% compared to last week, and the project itself was in second place on the chart. And sales Gran Turismo 7 jumped a whopping 152% due to new PS5 shipments, pushing the game up to number three.
Sales Horizon Forbidden West increased by 52% for the same reason – sequel Zero Dawn as a result, took fourth place.
