Call of Duty: WWII holds firm at the top of the UK Charts

Mario and Zelda back on the rise

With Christmas shopping well underway, the UK charts is getting quite the weekly shake-up, even if the top slots do appear to be permanent fixtures.

Activision’s military shooter Call of Duty: WWII remains firmly in the number slot, still backed up by FIFA 18 and Star Wars: Battlefront II, which has climbed a slot from last week. In good news for Nintendo, Super Mario Odyssey has also stepped up another couple of slots, just pipping Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins.

As we approach the latter part of the Top Ten, we see the terrible WWE 2K18 make an appearance, probably due to its recent Switch port, which is supposedly a mess. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 has also re-entered the Top Ten, LEGO games being a popular seller most yuletide seasons.

Further down the charts, re-entries have been made by multiple Minecraft titles, as well as DOOM, Prey and even Mario Kart 7. Zelda: Breath of the Wild also received a huge boost in sales, moving up from number 29 to number 17.
