UK: video games sales for Week 43, 2015 (ending October 24th)

During Week 43, two games came out on Nintendo platforms in the United Kingdom, and one of them is quite simply legendary. Of course, we’re talking about The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, even though it sales don’t seem to be that legendary… Indeed, the game only managed to land at #11, which is still a decent result (albeit a tad disappointing for one of Nintendo’s flagship series).

How will The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes sell during the upcoming weeks and throughout the holiday period? We will have to wait a bit before finding out! It’s quite possible good word of mouth will help sales, but there’s no doubt the fact the game is focused on multiplayer definitely put off fans of the series (who are more used to a Single Player experience).

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force HeroesThe second and last entry on Nintendo platforms this week is Just Dance 2016 (on Wii), which opened at #33. This may seem a bit low at first glance, but Just Dance is a game that typically sells a lot on long periods, and especially closer to Christmas. Unsurprisingly, the Wii U version is nowhere to be seen (it’s #6 of the Wii U-only chart), as the audience for that game generally sticks to Wii or have abandonned it altogether.

FInally, there’s still several Nintendo games in the Top 40, such as:

  • Super Mario Maker: went from #13 to #17, but is still holding nicely. Quite naturally, it’s the best-selling title on Wii U;
  • Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer‘s drop is worse, as it went from #9 to #19. It’s still the second best-selling title on Nintendo 3DS, after The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes;
  • Mario Kart 8 is the only one going up, from #34 to #27. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough for it to overcome Super Mario Maker.
