Super Mario 3D All-Stars has debuted in first place, according to GfK for the week ending September 19, 2020. It is the third biggest launch in the UK of 2020, behind The Last of Us Part II and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The collection includes three classic 3D Mario platforming games: Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. It is the fifth fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game in the UK, behind Pokémon Sword and Shield, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and Super Mario Odyssey.

Mario Kart Wii, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Super Mario Odyssey are the only games to feature Mario to have a bigger launch in terms of physical copies sold in the UK than Super Mario 3D All-Stars.

Marvel's Avengers after two weeks at the top has fallen to second as sales declined 46 percent week-on-week. Animal Crossing: New Horizons remained in third as sales only dropped five percent. 

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 fell to fourth as sales dropped 54 percent. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remained in fifth as sales grew nine percent.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds debuted in sixth and eFootball PES 2021 Season Update debuted in ninth.

In case everyone will ever wonder why Nintendo doesn't put too much effort into Switch releases nowadays. This here is your answer. Next up the zelda or metroid collection, emulated for 60,-.

I'm inclined to agree. Not including Super Mario 64 DS as a bonus option is pretty weak. Personally, SM64 aged terribly compared to Sunshine and Galaxy.

The fact Animal Crossing have a massive opening and have very long legs is insane!

At least Animal Crossing is a game that was released during this year. That chart also has Minecraft Switch (released in 2018), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (released in 2017), and GTA V (released in 2014) on the list!
