Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons may have released back in March but it’s still out-performing recent releases. According to the latest UK retail sales charts from Gfk, the Nintendo Switch title is on top once again. This is despite sales dropping by 2 percent week-on-week, as noted by GamesIndustry.biz.

This week has been rather slow in terms of new releases – the only other major launch was 2K Sports’ PGA Tour 2K21. It managed to debut in second place, which is impressive. Another sports title, EA Sports UFC 4, dropped to third place with sales falling by 38 percent week-on-week.

Interestingly enough, thanks to sales, Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 managed to re-enter the charts at ninth place. Sales increased by 75 percent week-on-week but it wasn’t enough to beat out games like Ghost of Tsushima, FIFA 20 and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe. Check out the top ten chart for the week ending August 22nd below. We’ll see how this week goes, especially with games like Wasteland 3, Project CARS 3 and more releasing.
