Minecraft for Switch takes No.1 | UK Boxed Charts

The only new game in the charts this week was WRC 10 at No.40

It's been a quiet week at UK retail, which mainly benefited the Nintendo Switch.

Minecraft for Switch took the top spot of the UK physical charts, with a 29% increase in sales week-on-week, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remained at No.2 with a 16% rise.

Further down the top ten, Animal Crossing: New Horizons also saw its sales rise 15% compared to last week, grabbing No.5.

Overall, Switch sales were up 5% week-on-week, while the market as a whole was down 6% in units.

Over on PlayStation 5, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart climbed eight spots to No.4 with sales increasing 38% week-on-week.

EA's F1 2021 saw its price drop, meaning the title jumped from No.17 to No.8 thanks to a 51% rise in sales.

Last week's No.1, Focus' Aliens: Fireteam Elite, dropped to No.12 following a 77% decrease in sales.

You had to look further down to find new entries in the UK charts this week, with The Medium re-entering the list at No.36 following the title's release on PS5, and WRC 10 debuting at No.40.
