New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe retains No.1 in the UK games chart, despite strong competition from Ace Combat 7.

Bandai Namco’s Ace Combat series has its biggest ever debut in the latest Ukie/GFK Top 40, the chart that tracks physical video game sales in the UK.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown enters the chart at No.2, held off the top spot by Nintendo Switch-exclusive, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, which stays at No.1 for a second week.
