It may not top the record-breaking performance of the UK games market last week, but tomorrow is set to be one of the busiest days of the year for games retailers.
Eight top-tier games will all be released tomorrow drawing in fans from across a range of genres.
The headline act is the long-awaited Nintendo pair of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Wii and DS outing Super Mario 3D Land.
How the Wii title will perform in today’s market is hard to predict, but expect big things from Mario – and a healthy boost to 3DS hardware sales.
Also on the way tomorrow are EA’s Need for Speed: The Run, Warner’s LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 and THQ’s Saints Row: The Third.
That’s not it, either. Sega’s Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is also arriving, as are Microsoft’s Disneyland Adventures and Capcom’s Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
And don’t forget that on Tuesday of this week we had two other triple-A blockbusters arrive at retail – Ubiosoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and Microsoft’s Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.
Here’s within UK retail a good night’s sleep. Tomorrow’s going to be busy.
