Animal Crossing continues to dominate UK retail | UK Boxed Charts

And Mario Kart 8: Deluxe is No.2. Again.

Another week, another triumph for Nintendo in the UK boxed charts.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is No.1 once again, for the fourth time this year, despite a 13% drop in sales. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe stays at No.2 for the second consecutive week, with a 1% slip in sales.

It was very nearly a Nintendo top three, but Ring Fit Adventure missed out on third spot by just 52 units. The fitness game's sales rose 34% week-on-week, but couldn't quite topple Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which held on despite an 8% sales drop.

The only significant new boxed game to come out this year (so far) is Hitman 3, and that game is now down at No.17 with a 54% slide in sales week-on-week.

There was one new game in the charts, and that's Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthbound at No.36. The game was published by Maximum Games in the UK.

It's a fairly quiet start to the year for the games market, but there is a significant new game arriving this coming week in the form of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury for Nintendo Switch. That game will certainly be the best-selling boxed game this time next week.

Here is the GfK Top Ten for the week ending February 7th:
