Let Nintendo fans rest assured, it is indeed the Switch that dominated the software charts, in Great Britain too, last year. Nevertheless, by comparing the sales of video games in France to those collected across the Channel by Amazon, it is obvious that the subjects of his majesty are less fond of the hybrid console than us-others, eaters of frogs and snails!
Switch games are selling well all the same, across the Channel
This is not new, in Great Britain, Nintendo is less popular than elsewhere in Europe. It has always been that way, with no credible explanation ever given. Still, in this year 2020, while France was largely dominated by the Switch (9 games in the top ten according to Amazon France), in the land of the Queen, the debates were much more disputed. This did not prevent Animal Crossing: New Horizons from taking the final first place, as in any other country …
Thus, the game in question retains the top of this ranking, despite the release of FIFA 21 (PS4), which takes second place. We imagine that if the football game had been released at the same time as its “competitor”, it would undoubtedly have stolen this leadership position from it. In third place, it is Minecraft version Switch which is illustrated followed, in order, by Super Mario 3D All-Stars, FIFA 21 (Xbox One) and Just Dance 2021.
Here is the ranking of the top ten video game sales in 2020 according to Amazon UK.
1. Animal Crossing New Horizons
2. FIFA 21 (PS4)
3. Minecraft (Switch)
4. Super Mario 3D All-Stars
5. FIFA 21 (Xbox One)
6. Just Dance 2021 (Switch)
7. The Last of Us Part 2
8. Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4)
9. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (Xbox One)
10. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (PS4)
