We're in the middle of the Summer lull in the games retail market - there are few new releases meaning that evergreen titles lead the way. That's certainly the case in the UK, but the most recent chart results do bring some cheer for Nintendo.

In a week with no big-hitting newcomers Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy on PS4 is still leading the way for the fourth week in a row. Discounted multi-platform hits follow close behind, with Splatoon 2 securing sixth spot (the same as last week); right behind it in 7th place we have Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which climbed eight places. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also climbed seven spots (driven by Switch sales) to settle in 13th place, while 1-2-Switch is the final representative for Nintendo's latest system in 39th.

The top performer for 3DS is still Miitopia, though it drops out of the top 10 to finish up in 15th place. We then head lower down to find some evergreen titles - Pokemon Sun is in 32nd place, followed by New Super Mario Bros. 2 in 33rd.

Not a bad week for Nintendo in the UK, especially with Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continuing to draw decent sales.
