The Nintendo Switch dominates the UK video game charts with six titles in the Top Ten.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons remains at the top of the UK video game charts for a third week, despite a 24% decrease in sales. Overall, it’s another excellent week for Nintendo with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Switch edition of Minecraft, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, and Ring Fit Adventure all in the Top Ten.
Just Dance 2021 – this week’s No.3 – may as well be a Switch exclusive. According to GI.Biz, 87% of its sales were on Nintendo’s console.
The week’s biggest chart climber is Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, which jumps four places to No.4. Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War also rises up the chart, taking cover at No.7. And FIFA 21 falls two places but stays mid-table.
The week’s only new entry is horror compilation Five Nights At Freddy’s: Core Collection, which debuts at No.32.
Here’s last week’s UK physical software sales top ten.
