The latest UK physical charts are in and the top ten is much less of a Nintendo-fest than we are used to seeing, with even the Big N’s newest releases failing to make the podium.
It is Hogwarts Legacy that sits in pole position this time, with the newly-released Switch port making up 70% of the total sold in the last week. Last week’s big newbie on Switch, Super Mario RPG, misses out on a podium spot by quite some way and lands in sixth for its first chart appearance, just one place below Mario Wonder.
Also around this spot in the charts do we see Bluey: The Videogame, which sits in seventh in its debut week thanks in large part to the Nintendo console (Switch makes up 80% of sales, while PS5, PS4 and Xbox Series S/X take 9%, 7% and 5% respectively).
The rest of the chart features a good number of titles that we haven’t seen for a while as Black Friday deals start to kick in. This does mean that even Switch mainstays like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Minecraft and Animal Crossing: New Horizons find themselves outside of the top ten this time — and Tears of the Kingdom is only just hanging on to a place in the top 40!
