Animal Crossing keeps on ruling UK retail

One more week, another victory for Nintendo in the UK boxed charts.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is No.1 indeed, for the fourth time this year, notwithstanding a 13% drop in sales. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe stays at No.2 for the second continuous week, with a 1% slip in sales.

It was very nearly a Nintendo top three, yet Ring Fit Adventure passed up third spot by only 52 units. The fitness game’s sales rose 34% week-on-week, yet couldn’t exactly overturn Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which held on regardless of a 8% sales drop.

The simply significant new boxed game to come out this year (up until now) is Hitman 3, and that game is currently down at No.17 with a 54% slide in sales week-on-week.

There was one new game in the charts, and that is Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthbound at No.36. The game was published by Maximum Games in the UK.

It’s a genuinely tranquil beginning to the year for the games market, however there is a huge new game showing up this coming week as Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury for Nintendo Switch. That game will certainly be the best-selling boxed game this time one week from now.
