UKIE/Gfk Chart-Track’s data for boxed video game sales in the UK for the week ending June 29th is out, and it’s been a busy week, with three debutants ranking high in the charts. With just two days on the market, Super Mario Maker 2 has slotted right into pole position, while enjoying Nintendo’s biggest launch week in the UK for the year, beating out the previous holder of that honour, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe  (via GamesIndustry). Other Switch exclusives like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have also seen sales boosts, coming in at fifth and tenth respectively.

Super Mario Maker 2’s impressive debut means Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueledwhich itself debuted on top of charts last week, has been pushed down to second position. That said, its performance in sales has been holding steady, with only a 48 per cent week-on-week drop. The next two positions are also occupied by debutants- in third place, F1 2019 has sold similarly to last year’s game at launch (though that debuted in first place). Judgment follows in the fourth spot.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night debuted in 17th position last week, but has seen a significant jump in sales, having seemingly found its target audience on the Nintendo Switch, for which it launched only last week. It now occupies ninth place in the charts. The Switch version, in fact, has sold more in its launch week than the PS4 and Xbox One versions sold in their own launch week combined.

The Sinking City, another new release, failed to break into the top 10, coming in at twelfth place. Take a look at the full top 10 below.

  1. Super Mario Maker 2
  2. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
  3. F1 2019
  4. Judgment
  5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  6. Red Dead Redemption 2
