Grand Theft Auto V leads a static top three in the EMEAA charts

Team Ninja's Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order was the only new entry in the combined physical and digital chart

Grand Theft Auto V remained the best-selling game across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australia last week, in terms of combined physical and digital sales.

Nintendo's Super Mario Maker 2 was the biggest game at retail, but the strength of Rockstar's evergreen blockbuster in the digital chart was enough to ensure that it stayed at the top overall.

As the drought on major releases continued, the summit of the combined GSD EMEAA chart remained relatively static -- the top three games all stayed in the same position as the previous week.

The only new entry was Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, a Switch exclusive developed by Team Ninja, which entered the combined chart in fourth place, and the digital chart in third.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and Red Dead Redemption 2 all re-entered the combined top ten, with Assassin's Creed climbing 31 places in the digital chart to end the week in third.

Square Enix' Dragon Quest Builders 2 showed a steep decline in the combined chart, falling to 18th place after debuting in fifth last week.

Here's the top ten best-selling games by units (combined digital and physical) in EMEAA for the week ending July 21:
