Switch exclusive Fire Emblem beats Wolfenstein: Youngblood to top UK chart

The house always wins.

Nintendo Switch exclusive Fire Emblem: Three Houses has topped the UK charts during its first week of release, beating Wolfenstein: Youngblood into second place.

Fire Emblem sold more than double the physical copies on Nintendo Switch than the Wolfenstein spin-off shifted across PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.

Three Houses is the franchise's biggest release for a very long time - as far as our records go back. It sold a decent amount more than the combined launch sales of Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest/Birthright for 3DS, as well as those for previous 3DS entry Fire Emblem: Awakening. It sold around 15 times more than Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn did on Wii.
