United Kingdom (Week 32)
In the United Kingdom, the Pokémon GO effect is starting to wane a bit, but sales of Pokémon games (and other 3DS titles) remain significantly stronger than they were before the launch of the mobile game.
As far as Pokémon games go, we have:
- Pokémon Omega Ruby: #13 (lost 1 place), best-seller on Nintendo 3DS
- Pokémon Alpha Sapphire: #21 (lost 10 places)
- Pokémon X and Y are now out of the Top 40
Next, we have Tomodachi Life, which saw a surge in sale this week: it went from #23 to #18. But that increase is nothing compared to the one for Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics, which went straight from #33 to #20. Since the actual Olympics are in full swing, it’s no wonder sales are increasing. It’s still the best-seller on Wii U.
Monster Hunter Generations is holding better than expected, and is now #22 after losing 5 places. We can expect it to remain in the Top 40 at least until the end of the month. Same for New Super Mario Bros. 2, which lost 4 places and is now ranked #23. Finally, the Wii U version of Minecraft gained 4 places during Week 32, and is now #30.

France (Week 31)
This week, Monster Hunter Generations lost one more place, and is now #3. It’s still holding pretty well, and hasn’t left the Top 5 ever since its release on July 15th. It’s still the best-selling game on Nintendo 3DS, followed by Yo-kai Watch, which didn’t budge at all this week (still #4). On Wii U, the best-seller is still Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
