Though critical reviews have been fairly average, Nintendo’s Mario Golf: Super Rush continues to dominate in UK physical retail sales according to Gfk (via GamesIndustry.biz). Despite a 52 percent drop in sales week-on-week, the title is still in the number one position, perhaps owing to the lack of any major new releases. FIFA 21 took second place despite sales dropping by 11 percent.
In third place is Mario Kart 8: Deluxe which rose to third place despite sales dropping by 19 percent. Animal Crossing: New Horizons also saw sales drop by 22 percent but still managed to hit fourth place. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart’s sales dropped by 54 percent, causing it to place in sixth for the week.
Grand Theft Auto 5 sales were up by 20 percent and it ranked in seventh place while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild placed at tenth thanks to sales rising by 31 percent. Scarlet Nexus debuted in eighth place last week but has since dropped to 27th due to a 62 percent drop in sales.
