Animal Crossing

Potentially thanks to a new boost of interest in the franchise after the recent Animal Crossing Switch announcement - and with Isabelle joining the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster - Animal Crossing: New Leaf has re-entered the UK charts this week.

The game has sold just enough copies to squeeze its way back into the top 40, grabbing a 37th place spot in the all formats chart and 36th in the individual format variety. Our joint-favourite moustachioed plumber (because we're more than happy to show Luigi some love, too) has also kept a firm grip on some decent places, with the two biggest Mario titles on Switch making it into the top ten.

It's a tough time for Nintendo to compete at the top, though, as Marvel's Spider-Man looks set to become the biggest physical release in the country this year. Its sales have now overtaken the mighty God of War, with only multiplatform hit Far Cry 5 now standing in the way of that glory; FIFA 19 will likely have something to say about these proceedings when it arrives later this week, though.

Here's a look at this week's top ten all formats chart (physical sales only):

1. (1) Spider-Man
2. (2) Shadow of the Tomb Raider
3. (4) Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy
4. (3) NBA 2K19
5. (5) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
6. (6) Grand Theft Auto V
7. (10) Super Mario Odyssey
8. (7) F1 2018
9. (11) PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
10. (12) Sonic Mania Plus
