The latest weekly charts for physical video game sales in the UK are in (via GamesIndustry), and the very top of the pile hasn’t seen a lot of movement from last week. F1 2021 climbed to the top spot last week, and has retained that position this week in spite of a 42% week-on-week drop in sales. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is similarly holding strong in second place.
Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, which released back in 2019, jumped up in sales thanks to the currently ongoing Olympics, coming in at No. 8. One new entry in the top 10 this week is NEO: The World Ends with You, which sees somewhat tepid debut and comes in at No. 10. 63% of its sales came on the Nintendo Switch.
The rest of the top 10 features a lot of games that have been charting regularly in these charts, with the likes of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto 5, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and FIFA 21 all continuing to exhibit long legs in terms of sales.
You can check out the full top 10 for the week ending July 31 below.
