Ghost of Tsushima Easily Beats Out Paper Mario: The Origami King on UK Sales Chart

Ghost of Tsushima sold four times more copies in its launch week compared to the other biggest release of the week, Paper Mario: The Origami King.

In a battle between the two biggest releases of the past week, Sony’s latest, Ghost of Tsushima, ended up besting the competition.

Sucker Punch’s Ghost of Tsushima topped the weekly UK sales chart for this past week and in the process surpassed Nintendo’s newest launch in Paper Mario: The Origami King. While Ghost of Tsushima didn’t come close to doing the same number as Sony’s The Last of Us Part II did last month, it was still a massive release all the same. According to GamesIndustry.bizGhost of Tsushima sold at a rate four times higher compared to that of Paper Mario: The Origami King, which came in second place for the week, showing that there wasn’t much competition between the two titles.

That said, Paper Mario didn’t have a weak release in the UK by any means. The Origami King is said to have had a bigger launch in the region than the last two entries in the series — Sticker Star and Color Splash — had combined. It also ended up surpassing the first week sales of Super Paper Mario on the Wii, making The Origami King the biggest first-week launch for any installment in the franchise.

As for what else charted well this past week, more of the usual suspects were seen near the top. Last week’s top-seller F1 2020 dropped from first to third while Animal Crossing: New Horizons moved down to fourth. Meanwhile, The Last of Us Part II has continued to sell at a solid rate and rounded out this past week’s top five spots.
