The UK physical chart data for last week is in, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe seems to have benefited the most from the Black Friday deals.
Just like every year, gamesindustry.biz took a close look at the boxed top ten games for the week ending November 27.
The data shows that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was the most purchased game last week, and considering the game was part of Nintendo’s headline bundle deal for the Switch console, it’s not a big surprise. For the week before that, the game was actually ranked seventh and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond was leading the scoreboard. Thanks to Black Friday, there’s been a bit of a shake up on the sales front.
This data only include Black Friday itself and doesn’t include the sales weekend. We can expect another interesting sales week considering today is Cyber Monday and gamers are flocking to grab Nintendo games at sale prices ahead of the holiday season.
