Monster Hunter Rise Debuts in 1st on the UK Charts, Super Mario 3D All-Stars Sales Jump 276%

Monster Hunter Rise Debuts in 1st on the UK Charts, Super Mario 3D All-Stars Sales Jump 276% - Sales

by William D'Angelo , posted on 29 March 2021 / 2,435 Views

Monster Hunter Rise has debuted in first place on the UK retail charts, according to GfK for the week ending March 27, 2021.

It is the second biggest launch in franchise history in the UK as 2017's Monster Hunter World had a bigger opening. Monster Hunter Rise launch sales were 43 percent lower than Monster Hunter World. However, it should be noted that Monster Hunter World launched on two platforms and not just one and its figures include digital sales. 

Physical sales for Monster Hunter Rise are more than twice the size of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the Nintendo 3DS, which was the last Nintendo exclusive Monster Hunter game.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars saw sales jump 276 percent, which was enough for the game to take second place. The game will be taken off store shelves and removed from the Nintendo eShop at the end of the month. 

Here are the top 10 best-selling titles:

    1. Monster Hunter Rise
    2. Super Mario 3D All-Stars
    3. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
    4. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury
    5. Minecraft Dungeons
    6. Minecraft (NS)
    7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
    8. FIFA 21
    9. Luigi's Mansion 3
    10. Super Mario Odyssey

I could be wrong, but I don't think the physical copies of 3d all-stars will be removed from shelves. I think they're just selling out and not being replenished.

Yep, only Nintendo stores will remove them from shelves if I understand that correctly.
For others retailers it will be until supplies last.

The last Nintendo exclusive Monster Hunter was Generations Ultimate (XX), not 4 Ultimate. lol
Before Generations Ultimate was Stories, then Generations, then 4 Ultimate.

The Switch is very popular in the UK. The Wii U wasn't.
A 9/10 week for the Switch is still very unusual.
