The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening enters the latest UK video games chart from Ukie and GFK at No.1.
Nintendo’s remake of the classic 1993 Game Boy adventure, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, has debuted at No.1 in this week’s UK video games chart. Link knocks last week’s chart-topper, Borderlands 3, down one position.
Gears 5 also drops two places, to No.4, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe races three places up to No.3. We suspect that last week’s release of the Nintendo Switch Lite gave the game a Triple Mushroom boost.
Elsewhere in the top ten, PES 2020, falls two spots to No.5 and there’s a re-entry for The Division 2, which jumps from No.20 to No.6.
Other new entries include Truck Driver at No.11 and the PlayStation 4 remaster of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch at No.23. One sight we’re sad to see is Remedy Entertainment’s Control, which languishes at No.39 in its fourth week on the chart.
You can see the full top forty video game chart for the week ending September 21 on the Ukie website.

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.
