Animal Crossing: New Horizons atop the UK Charts once again


You can't keep a good doge down

Isabelle has won her rematch against Electronic Arts' UFC 4, with Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons regaining the number one spot of the UK Charts, after being usurped by the MMA simulator last week.

Sticking with the sports theme, 2K Games' golf sim PGA Tour 2K21 also had a successful physical launch, making an impressive debut at number three. The rest of Top Ten saw the summer mainstays jostling for position, as Nintendo's Ring Fit Adventure, Minecraft, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Sony open-world epics Ghost of Tsushima and Marvel's Spider-Man.

As we reach the tail end of August, September will see the new release schedule pick up, with the launch of titles such as Square Enix superhero throwdown Marvel's Avengers, Activision's retro-remake Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2, 2K Games' WWE 2K Battlegrounds, and inXile's Wasteland 3, paving the way for the 2020 holiday season.
