It's an otherwise quiet week for the boxed games market
Mario Golf: Super Rush is No.1 for a second consecutive week in the GfK UK boxed charts.
The Nintendo Switch game retains its position despite a 52% drop in sales week-on-week.
It was a quiet week for physical retail game sales in the UK. FIFA 21 retains second place despite an 11% sales drop, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe actually rises a place to No.3 despite a 19% sales dip, while Animal Crossing: New Horizons is also up a place to No.4 after a 22% sales slide.
Recent PS5 hit Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has slipped to No.6 after a 54% drop in sales week-on-week.
Only two games in the Top Ten increased in sales week-on-week. Grand Theft Auto 5 at No.7 (sales up 20%) and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at No.10 (sales up 31%). It's the third consecutive week of growth for the 2017 Zelda game and the second big jump in sales. It follows the new trailer for its eagerly-awaited sequel at E3 2021.
Also new last week was Scarlet Nexus from Bandai Namco, which falls from No.8 to No.27 after a 62% sales drop.
There is one new game in the charts this week: Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance at No.23. The game sold primarily on PlayStation consoles (54% on PS5 and 42% on PS4). The game is part of the Game Pass subscription service on Xbox, and that data is not counted here.
