The colorful Nintendos sequel is now out in the wild and is already proving to be an absolute smash hit. The wacky arena shooter has not only sold over three million copies in Japan, but has also debuted in the top spot of the UK Charts.

This feat represents the first time that the series has held the lead in terms of having a first-team position, although it is one of the few major Nintendo franchises to lose control. Both entries were still impressive no.1 slot, but were dropped off by CDPRs and Activisions, (which long-term readers will remember was a UK no.1 for infinity billion years.)

Originally available on Nintendo Switch four days ago, it is already proving to be one of the UK''s best-selling titles in 2022, as well as one of the most widely-selling Switch releases ever. Once more, the messy multiplayer release sees teams of players battle it out in turf war-based battle utilizing an array of ridonkulous weapons and unique special abilities in order to win the day.

It is set against a (simply) more industrial backdrop than its predecessors fallout from the final splatfest of favoring Chaos over Order.
