Super Mario Maker 2 builds on its impressive debut by retaining No.1 in the UK video games chart.
Nintendo’s wonderful platform game toolkit, Super Mario Maker 2, remains at the top of the latest entertainment software chart from GfK and Ukie. The game is one of four Nintendo Switch exclusives in the top ten, with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate surging up the chart to No.5 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild back in at No.9.
Activision’s Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled also holds the pace, remaining steady at No.2. In fact, it’s a good week all round for racing games with F1 2019 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe also in the top five, and Forza Horizon 4, Team Sonic Racing and The Crew 2 (yes, really) in the top forty.
Elsewhere, Mortal Kombat 11 returns to the top ten, moving an impressive fourteen places up the chart. The Sinking City, which entered last week’s chart at No.12, has sunk to No.37 in its second week.
Here’s the top ten. Head over to the GfK website for the full chart rundown.
