Build it, and they will come

Last week we reported on the news that Nintendo Labo had outsold God of War in Japan by almost 2-to-1, but sadly (and rather predictably) that hasn't been repeated in the UK.

Just as the Japanese will go absolutely crazy about anything Nintendo-related, the UK remains a Sony stronghold and unsurprisingly, Kratos' latest adventure has beaten Labo to the top spot. In fact, Labo had to settle for third place, as Ubisoft's Far Cry 5 was second.

It's not all bad news, however; as well as scooping bronze with the Variety Kit, Nintendo also had Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in 5th place and Super Mario Odyssey at eight - two titles which have exceptionally good legs on them. Zelda: Breath of the Wild dropped from 9th to 13th, while South Park: The Fractured But Whole hit 19th - no doubt due to the Switch release. The second Labo kit only managed 20th place.

Here's the top twenty:

  1. God of War
  2. Far Cry 5
  3. Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit
  4. FIFA 18
  5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  6. Fallout 4
  7. Call of Duty WW2
  8. Super Mario Odyssey
  9. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  10. Grand Theft Auto V
  11. Star Wars Battlefront II
  12. Lego Marvel Super Heroes II
  13. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  14. Destiny 2
  15. Prey
  16. Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Siege
  17. Sea of Thieves
  18. Rocket League: Collector's Edition
  19. South Park: Fractured But Whole
  20. Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 02: Robot Kit

Were you expecting Labo to go top in the UK, or did you think it wasn't in the cards?
