Mario Kart 8 Deluxe breaks out from the pack in this week’s UK Charts

Y’see, Britain only has 20 games on sale at any one time

It’s another successful week for Joseph Seed and co. as Ubisoft’s foreboding shooter Far Cry 5 maintains its position at the top of the UK charts. EA’s FIFA 18 is still a permanent fixture at number two, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe roaring into third, well over a year after its initial release.

The unstoppable Grand Theft Auto V climbed back to number four with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds bringing up the rear in fifth. Open-world RPG Fallout 4 has made yet another re-entry into the big leagues, while Crash Bandicoot rounds out the list at number ten.

Elsewhere in the charts, a huge re-entry was made by Bethesda’s Prey, slamming in at number 19. Also making their return to the Top 40 were Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 at number 31 and Sony’s Shadow of the Colossus at number 34.
