Mario

Japanese chart figures are now in for 7th - 13th January, revealing that New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has managed to steal the number one spot from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Smash Ultimate has had an incredibly impressive run since it launched back in December, taking the top spot every week for five weeks in a row. This week sees the first time the game has sold fewer than 200,000 copies, with New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe's debut sales total of 166,303 units being more than enough to claim number one.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition was another new entry this week, with the PS4 version of the game placing just ahead of the Switch version in the charts.
