Kirby gobbles up his competitors, LEGO Star Wars survives

The Syndicate of Leisure Software Publishers (SELL) shares the best sales of physical video games in France for week 15. Nothing can stop Kirby and the Forgotten World.

Once again, Nintendo establishes its authority in the French charts. The ranking of the best physical video games in France, for the week 15, is made up almost exclusively of Nintendo Switch titles. A famous football game nevertheless returns to the top 5.

Charts France: Nintendo is the king, even with a third-party game

Since its release on March 25, 2022, Kirby and the Forgotten World has not left the top 5 best video games in France. And for the week that ended, the little pink ball is back in first place. An insane success. The 3D platform game for all audiences is closely followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokémon Legends Arceus.

The very solid LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga manages to survive in this top 5, but it only occupies the fourth position. On the other hand, this is also a winning move for Nintendo since it is the Switch version. The king we tell you. Finally, FIFA 22 closes these console charts, EA’s football game which will be offered in May’s PS Plus.

It moves a little on PC

In these PC charts for week 15, Farming Simulator 22 and Elden Ring (Launch Edition) retain their first and third place respectively. It is therefore at the second position that we observe a change. In effect, Football Manager 2022 has arrived to knock Microsoft Flight Simulator (Premium Deluxe Edition) off the leaderboard. The benchmark flight simulator had been given a boost thanks to Spain’s update.
