In recent weeks we've seen some happier times for Nintendo in the UK, as evergreen releases have established themselves in the top 40 charts thanks to a variety of factors - namely Pokémon GO mania, competitive prices and some solid advertising campaigns.

That trend continues in the latest Chart-Track results. The highest entry is Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which has enjoyed some decent sales before and during the event in Brazil; it's 16th in the all-format chart, though that's mostly off the back of Wii U version sales. The only other Wii U representative in the top 40 is Minecraft: Wii U Edition, which climbed up seven places to 31st in the all-format chart.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 continues its slightly surprising rise, perhaps benefitting from price promotions and its 2DS bundle; it jumped 16 places last week to end up as the best-selling 3DS game and 17th in the all-format results. Next up on 3DS was Tomodachi Life, climbing three places to 23rd.

Pokémon mania is starting to fade a little, but nevertheless Pokémon Omega Ruby is still in 24th place, with Alpha Sapphire down in 35th.

Monster Hunter Generations is on its way out, it seems, having dropped down to 40th place in the all-format charts (34th single format). If you switch to single-format charts a couple of other 3DS titles sneak in, with Mario Kart 7 in 35th and Yo-kai Watch in 40th.

Overall there have been some positive results for Nintendo UK during the summer, despite the limited number of high profile new releases over the past couple of months.
