Animal Crossing: New Horizons retains No.1 spot of a static UK Charts


Madden '21 the only new entry in Top Ten

It was a quiet one for physical releases last week. As such, there has been very little movement in the UK Charts, with only Electronic Arts' annual football release Madden NFL '21 breaking the Top Ten.

Nintendo Switch social sim Animal Crossing: New Horizons currently holds the number one spot, having popped in and out of the premier position since its initial release back in March (Yes, March. Can you believe it?). The remainder of the Top Ten is rounded out with Nintendo regulars such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Ring Fit Adventure, and Minecraft, alongside sporting titles such as Electronic Arts' UFC 4, FIFA 20 and 2K Games' PGA 2K21.

This is merely a calm before the storm of the holiday release period. Next week sees the launch of Square Enix' Marvel's Avengers, 2K Games' NBA 2K21, and Activision's much-desired Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 & 2, kicking off what is to be several months of guaranteed high-street sellers.
