Yup, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is still at No.1 in another impressive week for Nintendo in GfK’s UK video game charts.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons remains at No.1 in the UK’s latest physical software chart. It’s another blockbuster week for the Nintendo Switch, with Mario Kart 8 DeluxeRing Fit AdventureMinecraft, and Super Mario 3D All-Stars all in the Top Ten.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sneaks back into the upper echelons of the chart, climbing from No.12 to No.10. And speaking of Ubisoft, it’s also pleasing to see Immortals Fenyx Rising performing steadily. It’s also up two places to No.14.


The excellent Hitman III – which was top spot two weeks ago, and dropped to No.11 last week – falls another six places to No.17. Cyberpunk 2077 also drops another two positions to No.30

The only new entry is board game adaptation Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood, which debuts at No.36.
