Yoshi's Crafted World

Nintendo’s Yoshi’s Crafted World lands at the top of the UK video games chart.

Adorable Nintendo Switch platformer, Yoshi’s Crafted World, has entered the latest UK software chart at No.1. The Good Feel-developed game has received warm reviews for its imaginative design and accessibility, and what it lacks in challenge it makes up for with sheer charm. We can see the game sticking around for a while to come.

Last week’s chart topper, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, falls two places to No.3. Ubisoft’s online shooter, The Division 2, holds steady in second spot, and the publisher’s remastered version of Assassin’s Creed III enters the chart at a creditable No.9.


The rest of the Top Ten sees the usual suspects shuffle a little, with both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Far Cry New Dawn climbing one position each.

Further down the chart there’s a new entry for Avalanche Studio’s survival shooter, Generation Zero, at No.19, and Nine Dots’ Outward at No. 24.

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.
