The UK chart results have been updated for another week and bring a decent outcome for Nintendo; despite a small number of new arrivals on other platforms the current mainstays on Wii U and 3DS are holding good positions.

For starters Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer has enjoyed a strong second week in stores, dropping just one place in both the all-format and single-format charts, meaning it's in 7th and 8th place respectively. FIFA 16 is number one (of course) and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is a new arrival on PS4 that made its debut in 2nd place; the likes of Happy Home Designer have stayed ahead of Rock Band 4, however, which only managed 10th place in its first week.

Super Mario Maker is another solid performer, maintaining its run in 18th place in the all-format charts, a modest drop of three places. It's actually moved up the same number of places to 10th in the single-format stakes, however, which is a pleasing result. Way down at the bottom of the all-format top 40, meanwhile, we have Mario Kart 8 sneaking onto the grid.

The only notable disappointment is that the Wii U version of LEGO Dimensions was the only entry of that title that didn't get into the single-format top 40; we're currently finishing off our review which will be with you shortly.

A decent week all told for Nintendo in the UK.
