Nintendo Switch has secured its first UK No.1 with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
In fact, it's the first Nintendo boxed game to get to No.1 since 2011, when the format holder topped the charts with Pokémon White on DS. It's also the first Mario game to reach the top of the charts since Mario Kart Wii in 2008.
Nintendo used the launch of its racer to ship more Switch stock to retailers, which has seen The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild return to the Top Five (at No.5) with a 68% increase in sales week-on-week.
Elsewhere, there's a number of new releases in the Top 40, with publishers using the quiet release window to debut niche and indie games at physical retail
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 debuts at No.2, with Bandai Namco's well reviewed new IP Little Nightmares debuting at No.4.
Meanwhile, a compilation of the horror series Outlast - published by Warner Bros - reaches No.14.
Finally, Puyo Puyo Tetris makes No.18, with the majority of sales coming on Nintendo Switch.
All of this means Ubisoft's latest success - Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands - falls from No.1 to No.7. FIFA 17 also takes a big fall, down from No.3 to No.9.
