Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Last week we saw Nintendo Labo: Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit make a strong debut in the UK software charts at position three. Unfortunately for Nintendo, it's fallen out of favour this week in the UK, slipping all the way to 13th place.

Poor old Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 02: Robot Kit, only charted at 20th place last week. This week it's not anywhere to be found in the UK top 40. Ouch! So there we have it folks, UK consumers really don't like buying cardboard kits it would seem.

The bean counters over at PlayStation UK will no doubt be delighted by the excellent God of War maintaining it's first place supremacy. But hot on Kratos' heels is the rather charming Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze which rolls effortlessly into second place this week.

Of course, there's no doubt of the quality of Tropical Freeze, but it did appear to struggle on its Wii U launch. Mainly because Wii U itself was doing so badly by that point. It's great to see this game get the attention it deserves on Nintendo's portable powerhouse.

Here are the UK charts top 20 for your consideration:

1. God Of War
2. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
3. Far Cry 5
4. Fifa 18
5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
6. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2
7. Fallout 4
8. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds
9. Star Wars Battlefront II
10. Super Mario Odyssey
11. Sea Of Thieves
12. Grand Theft Auto V
13. Nintendo Labo: Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit
14. Call Of Duty: WWII
15. The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
16. Destiny 2
17. Assassin's Creed Origins
18. DOOM
19. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
20. Rocket League: Collectors Edition

Lots of Nintendo Switch games in the top 20 this week. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey prove to be as popular as ever with UK consumers.
