Tomodachi Life love

The weekly UK game sales charts are in again and we continue to see a flurry of PS4/Xbox One blockbusters hogging the top slots. Sniper Elite 3, Watch Dogs and EA Sports UFC are enjoying their time at the top this week.

Tomodachi Life is showing great resilience and is in 15th place this week, a leap from 17th place last week. It would appear that word of mouth is getting out there in the UK about this quirky and fun Mii life-sim still.

Mario Kart 8 is now in 10th position, which is a slight dip from last week's 7th place.

Nintendo, with a relatively quiet release slate between now and September — in retail game terms — will no doubt hope to see these titles continue to mix it in the upper half of the top 40.
