The data for last week’s physical software sales in the UK has come in, courtesy of Gfk (via GamesIndustry), and to no one’s surprise, the two big new releases have taken the top 2 spots. Sucker Punch’s open world samurai epic Ghost of Tsushima was comfortably the highest selling game of the week. Though its launch didn’t touch the heights of The Last of Us Part 2’s debut, it did sell 7 per cent more on its debut that Sony’s previous new IP, Days Gone.

In second place is Paper Mario: The Origami King. The action-adventure Switch exclusive is the fastest-selling Paper Mario game in the UK to date, with more launch sales than the previous two releases (Colour Splash and Sticker Star) combined. It has also narrowly outsold the instalment before those two, Super Paper Mario.

F1 2020which debuted on top of the charts last week, has dropped down to No. 3, which Animal Crossing: New Horizons and The Last of Us Part 2 round out the top 5. The rest of the top 10 is populated by games we’ve become used to seeing on these charts, including the likes of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Grand Theft Auto 5, and more.
