Pokémon and Jedi fight for supremacy in the latest UK video games chart.

Nintendo has six releases in the top ten as Pokémon Sword debuts at No.1 in the latest video games chart from Ukie. The game pips Respawn Entertainment’s acclaimed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order into second place. Pokémon Shield lands at No.3 and the dual pack of both Sword and Shield also makes the top ten at No.7.

Luigi’s Mansion 3 falls two places to sixth, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe drifts to No.9, and Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 drops down to tenth.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
