UK Charts: Super Mario Maker 2 holds back Crash Team Racing

It is Monday which means it is time to check out how the various software releases have performed in the United Kingdom. It continues to be a fight for the top spot between Super Mario Maker 2 and Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled.

As you saw from the headline, it is once again Super Mario Maker 2 which which reigns supreme. It is very impressive especially since Nintendo used to have a tough time in the UK with players previously preferring to purchase PlayStation or Xbox.

“No.5 is another Switch fast climber, with Super Smash Bros Ultimate jumping five places after a 21% increase in sales performance. The fourth Switch game in the Top Ten is a return for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which makes No.9… despite sales actually falling 9%.”

“Further down the charts, Super Mario Party (+1%), Super Mario Odyssey (+14%), New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe (-11%) and Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu (-1%) all rose up the charts, although some of those titles did drop slightly in sales. Broadly, handheld games tend to be more resilient in the summer months when game sales take tumble, with consumers picking up portable devices to play on their summer breaks.”

Here is the UKIE/GfK Top Ten for the week ending July 6th:
