The weekly charts for boxed software sales in the UK are out (via GamesIndustry), and to no one’s surprise, FIFA 21 has topped the charts on debut. Its physical sales are down 42% over FIFA 20, continuing the series’ waning physical sales performance, but this is a series that has also grown every year in terms of digital sales. Meanwhile, in spite of a drop in launch sales, FIFA 21 still manages to enjoy the biggest launch of the year in the UK so far, beating the likes of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and The Last of Us Part 2.

Star Wars: Squadronswhich debuted in second place last week, holds on to that position in spite of a 55% week-on-week drop in sales. Meanwhile, last week’s top performer, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time drops down to third place, with a 58% week-on-week drop in sales.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Super Mario 3D All-Stars round out the rest of the top 5, while the remaining games in the top 10 are no surprises either, including the likes of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft, Minecraft Dungeons, and more.
