The latest UK chart results are now available, and there's no surprise to find Elden Ring (PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S) at the top; the latest FromSoftware title has had a huge amount of praise and hype up to and since its launch.
Fresh releases and major multiplatform games have seen the Switch representation in the top 10 get reduced this week, though Pokémon Legends: Arceus is still leading the way in 3rd place, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe just behind.
In terms of interesting statistics Switch is still the lead platform for FIFA 22, while it's 2nd for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition at a 35% share of sales.
Here's a look at this week's top ten all formats chart:
|Last Week||This Week||Title|
|2||Horizon Forbidden West|
||Pokemon Legends: Arceus|
||Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
||Call of Duty: Vanguard
|Dying Light 2: Stay Human
||Animal Crossing: New Horizons
||Minecraft (Switch Edition)
||Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition

Did you buy any of these chart-topping games this week? Let us know down below.
I'm waiting for Kirby!
Switch is the lead platform for FIFA?
@westman98 No it'll just be that there is a link on the website for a Switch version and its review etc.
I was almost gonna give in and get a discounted copy of FIFA20 but now that Mario Strikers is coming I’ll wait.
No GTAV in the top 10, but GTA still manages to be in there through the trilogy 'remaster', funny. Great to see Legends Arceus still up there, would be nice to see it outsell the other Switch Pokémon games so the Pokémon company can see quality does matter
It's worth mentioning that Arceus actually rose 5% in sales week-on-week. Likely the half-term effect.
Electronic Arts cant be arsed to bring Frostbite Englne to Switch and disrespect us by giving us "legacy crap" and still Switch is the lead platform for FIFA? Maybe Nintendo should put more pressure in EA
It's infuriating to see FIFA doing so well on switch. I'd have definitely bought a full fat fifa but I wouldn't consider it in its lazy legacy form.
@westman98 Wait what? Some mistake surely.
Switch leading platform for Fifa according to the article.. Also says the word "still" so it was last week also it seems.
Elden Ring is heavenly. I'm enjoying it very much.
It's so good...I haven't been able to put it down the entire weekend.
It's kicking my ass though...still fighting my way through Stormveil Castle.
@HalloHerrNoob I’m finally have a couple days off so I can enjoy it. Been playing here and there and it’s just so well done. Agheel keeps spanking me, but I like it! <3
My PC is too wimpy for Elden Ring but my definitely totally accurate impression from watching streamers is that it's 2 hours of character creation and then dying to bosses 500 times in a row. 🧐
I've kind of fallen off of Arceus for now, but can't say I'm sad missing out on Elden Ring. I'm happy playing backlog games and waiting for Kirby.
@dimi Frostbite does run on the Switch, ever since Plants Vs Zombies got ported.
Which then raises further questions as to why.
I suspect they made the initial FIFA on Switch and oast that initial investment whatever sales they make will just be free money.
I'm really enjoying Elden Ring! Beat the first big boss yesterday! Can't wait for Kirby tho!
@westman98 Wasn't that Xbox? Dang
@Kirby_Girl It feels like more Dark Souls, but even better, and prettier too
The idiots buying the Lazy Edition of FIFA are the reason we can’t have nice things.
Not surprised about the sales. This is pretty much what I expected it to look like
Interested to see what happens to Arceus sales next week. The Scarlet/Violet announcement certainly put me off a bit more from getting it. I'd rather wait and compare.
@BloodNinja Yeah i'm at the 20 hour mark now and its so good, can easily see it being my favourite game of the year
Hit the 12 hour mark of Elden Ring and my view has gone from, "this is good", to "this is alright". Glad it sold strongly though. Looking forward to Armoured Core.
Elden Ring is phenomenal. GOTY easily.
From software have nailed the souls formula with an open world.
Worth mentioning that the GTA Trilogy physical is on sale in a lot of UK stores apart from the Switch version which is full price
Hilarious that Switch FiFa is doing so well.
@geordie god of war Ragnarok enters the chat
@WallyWest I’ve got some catching up to do! Only on hour 3, but it’s already mindblowingly good. Games like it are very rare!
