Nintendo Switch Sports holds No.1 after small sales drop | UK Boxed Charts

Otherwise, it's yet another very quiet week for UK games retail

Nintendo Switch Sports holds No.1 for a second consecutive week, despite a slight 32% drop in boxed sales week-on-week.

It comfortably holds off Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which is still at No.2 despite a 24% sales fall.

It was another good week for PS5 stock, and as a result Horizon Forbidden West is back in the Top Three after a 108% sales increase week-on-week.

The one new release in the charts is the boxed launch of PlayStation exclusive Sifu, which debuts at No.9. 81% of the sales were on PS5, while the rest were on PS4.

There was some decent performances for Switch games last week, in part due to some retail sales activity. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe is at No.4 after a 3% sales increase, while Kirby and the Forgotten Land is back at No.5 following a 19% sales jump.

Here is the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending May 7:
