Even with so many big releases over the past few months, Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons reigns supreme. The Switch exclusive once again topped UK physical charts even as sales were down 21 percent week-on-week. As per Gfk (via GamesIndustry.biz), it’s sold over one million physical units in the territory thus far.

FIFA 21 is also doing pretty well, ranking in second place despite sales dropping 34 percent week-on-week. Monster Hunter Rise fell to sixth place with a 56 percent drop in sales week on week. Interestingly, Outriders has dropped to 16th place following its debut. Though physical sales have plummeted 74 percent since then, its digital sales are currently unknown.

In the meantime, titles like Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Minecraft on Switch, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe remain in the top ten for the week ending April 10th. Some have shifted positions but it’s going to take a huge release – perhaps next month’s Resident Evil Village – for a major shake-up. Check out the full top ten below.

  1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  2. FIFA 21
  3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  4. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
