But various older releases see significant sales boosts.

Last week’s charts for boxed video game sales in the UK were eventful, but not because of any specific new releases. As reported by GamesIndustry, last week’s Amazon Prime Day dales saw significant boosts in physical sales of various games in the UK retail, leading to sudden spikes for various older releases.

FIFA 21 topped the charts, which was where it debuted last week. Its sales went down from last week’s figures (though this is a game that seems to be performing better digitally). Apparently, the game is now also just a week’s sales away from outselling Animal Crossing: New Horizons to become the UK’s biggest game at retail in 2020 so far.

The charts are dominated otherwise by Switch games, with four exclusives in the top 10 (and 18 in the top 40). Animal Crossing: New Horizons saw a 44% increase in week-on-week sales, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe saw 70% increase, Minecraft for the Switch saw a 95% increase, while Ring Fit Adventure saw a 79% increase.

Meanwhile, Star Wars: Squadrons and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time have dropped from second and third places (respectively) to eighth and ninth places also respectively).
