Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes has just launched and is, by all accounts, a strong entry to the Warriors series for Nintendo Switch. We gave it a 9/10 in our recent review, calling it a “thoroughly entertaining mash-up of Musou mayhem, strategy and relationship-building aspects”.

The game has resonated with fans well over the course of just a few days, bagging the top spot in this week’s UK top ten charts. As pointed out by Christopher Doing from GameIndustry.biz, sales for Three Hopes are above its predecessor Fire Emblem Warriors and roughly level with Hyrule Warriors.

Elsewhere, it’s a strong week for the Switch overall, with the console making up seven of the top ten slots, including the third-party published Minecraft. Animal Crossing: New Horizons snuck into the top ten for the first time in several weeks, and recent hits like Nintendo Switch Sports and Mario Strikers: Battle League continue to demonstrate the Switch’s wide appeal.

Just to top it off, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga continues to be exceedingly popular on the Switch compared to other platforms, making up 40% of total sales for the game.
