Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - Nintendo Switch

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remains at the top of this week’s UK software charts, holding off Bethesda’s reboot of the Prey franchise.

Prey is the only new top ten entry in a fairly static week for the UK games charts. Elsewhere, Grand Theft Auto V continues to sit pretty at 3, along with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at 4, while Lego Worlds maintains its top ten residence at 5.

On the Nintendo Switch front, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sets the pace at the top of the chart, while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild slips two places. Fellow launch title 1-2 Switch jumps five spots from 17 to 22. It’s also interesting to see the five-year old Nintendo 3DS racer Mario Kart 7 still doing donuts in the lower reaches of the top 40, its moderate resurgence no doubt related to the success of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Of last week’s other top ten entries, Tarsier Studios’ spooky Little Nightmares falls eight places to 12, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 tumbles 11 places to 13.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
