Kirby And The Forgotten Land Had The Biggest UK Launch In The Franchise

Kirby and the Forgotten Land had a big launch in the UK and that’s usually a great sign for a game, as we wait for US numbers (and others) to be released.

Sometimes, a week or so after a game’s launch, Nintendo will publicly reveal how much a game has sold like it did with Pokemon Legends: Arceus in February. While Nintendo hasn’t yet done that for Kirby’s first full-featured 3D debut, GamesIndustry.biz reports that it landed at the top of the “UK Boxed Charts in its first week,” beating out what likely is its biggest release-week competitor, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, which came in second.

In fact, GamesIndustry.biz reports that Kirby and the Forgotten Land had the biggest launch ever for a Kirby game in the UK, selling 2.5 times the number of copies in its first week as the previous best, 2018’s Kirby Star Allies. This is actually Kirby’s first top-spot debut, too.

With less than a full week on the market, Kirby and the Forgotten Land is already the fifth best-selling Kirby game in the UK Elsewhere in UK video game sales, GhostWire: Tokyo, which also launched the same week as Kirby and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands , debuted in the eleventh spot.
