Super Mario 3D All-Stars sales UK delisted

The Super Mario apocalypse is nearly upon us, with just two days untilĀ Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Super Mario Bros. 35 fade from existence. The latest U.K. physical sales chart data reveals that Super Mario 3D All-Stars has jumped from the 9th spot to second place, sitting just behind the recently released Monster Hunter Rise, whose sales we just reported on as huge.

Here is the full top 10 list for the week ending March 27, with notably nine out of 10 of them being Nintendo Switch titles (as FIFA 21 is only a “legacy” edition on Switch):

Last Week This Week Title
New Entry 1 Monster Hunter Rise
9 2 Super Mario 3D All-Stars
1 3 Animal Crossing: New Horizons
2 4 Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
10 5 Minecraft Dungeons
8 6 Minecraft (Switch)
4 7 Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
13 8 FIFA 21
16 9 Luigi’s Mansion 3
19 10 Super Mario Odyssey

GamesIndustry.Biz reports that Monster Hunter Rise‘s physical launch sales were ”more than twice the size” of those of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for Nintendo 3DS. However, compared to Monster Hunter World, the games sales are 43% lower. That makes sense, as Monster Hunter: World launched on two platforms compared to just one.

Nintendo is intending to delist Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Super Mario Bros. 35 in two days time, so make sure you buy the former before then. It is shame to see Mario’s anniversary celebrations end this way, but hopefully Nintendo will speak up about other franchise birthdays this year. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light is also expected to be delisted on March 31.
