Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is the latest major retail release on the Switch, and it's off to a solid start in the UK.

The results for last week (physical retail sales) show the Ubisoft title making its debut in second place, behind PS4 release Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Though it's a little disappointing that another Switch title has been held to second spot, it's nevertheless a positive start for the crossover release.

Three more Switch titles can be found in the top 40; Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the next up in 13th place as it shows solid ongoing momentum. Though it also has a Wii U version, current-gen sales of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have helped it to secure 20th place, while Splatoon 2 is just behind in 21st. We only have one 3DS title to account for this week, however, with Pokémon Sun in 35th place.

A pretty good start for Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and it'll be interesting to see how its momentum holds up next week.
