United Kingdom (Week 31)
In the United Kingdom, the Pokémon GO effect is still going strong, despite the app already being available for a few weeks ago. Sales of Pokémon games on Nintendo 3DS still remain strong, as you can see with data for Week 31:
- Pokémon Alpha Sapphire is still #11, and the best-selling title on Nintendo 3DS;
- Pokémon Omega Ruby gained 3 places at once, and is now #12;
- Pokémon Y lost 4 places, and is now #27
- Pokémon X lost 15 places, and is now #35
As for Monster Hunter Generations, it looks like it’s going to hang around in the Top 40 longer than we expected, as it’s now #17 of sales (it gained one place this week). New Super Mario Bros. 2 is also holding pretty well, once again thanks to the Nintendo 2DS bundle (which is now out of stock on Amazon.co.uk).
Next, we have Tomodachi Life, another Nintendo 3DS game that has been enjoying pretty steady sales over the past few weeks, due to both the Pokémon GO boost and the Summer holidays. It’s now #23, after gaining two places during Week 31.
On Wii U, there’s two titles in the Top 40: Mario & Sonic at the Rio Olympics (#33, lost 6 places at once), and Minecraft: Wii U Edition (#34, lost 6 places at once, and now below the PlayStation 4 version). It doesn’t look like the Summer Olympics are having any impact on sales for the former, unfortunately…

France (Week 30)
After two weeks at #1, Monster Hunter Generations lost one place this week, and ended up at #2: still a pretty strong performance for the game, which is once again the best-selling title on Nintendo 3DS. As for Yo-kai Watch, it also lost one place, and is now #4: thanks to the Summer holidays being in full swing, sales seem to remain quite strong. On Wii U, the best-seller is still Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics!
Spain (July 2016)
In Spain, Monster Hunter Generations was the third best-selling title in July, which looks like a pretty decent debut for the latest entry in the Monster Hunter series. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to take on Yo-kai Watch, which is enjoying some really strong sales in Spain: it’s the third month in a row that the game is #1 of sales!
