Mario Games Enjoy Increased Sales in Weekly UK Retail Charts

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe all find themselves in the top 10 thanks to sales boosts.

The Gfk has released its latest data for physical software sales in the UK (via GamesIndustry), and while FIFA 23 is still in pole position after having reclaimed the spot last week, a number of Mario games have enjoyed increased sales as well, in the wake of the release of The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which is something of a permanent fixture in these charts either way, has climbed up to second position after a 9% increase in sales, while Super Mario Odyssey has jumped up to No. 5, thanks to a 15% sales increase, facilitated partly by a Switch bundle. Then there’s New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, which has climbed up to No. 10 after a 23% boost in sales.

A number of Mario titles outside of the top 10 have seen sales boosts as well, including Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (No. 13) with a 21% increase, Mario Part Superstars (No. 20) with a 3% increase, Mario Strikers: Battle League (No. 30) with a 111% increase, and Luigi’s Mansion 3 (No. 40) with a 7% increase.
