Splatoon 3 continues its dominance in the UK market (physically, at least) thanks to the latest charts data. The multiplayer sequel comes in at number one again, but right on its heels is none other than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Originally released back in April 2017 - over five years ago now - Nintendo's kart racer has enjoyed consistent success over the years, becoming the highest selling Nintendo Switch game by quite a margin. Nintendo has clearly recognised the long-term potential in its baby (park) and has commited to releasing six waves of new courses through to the end of 2023.

Elsewhere, the new entry in the top ten this week is Annapurna Interactive's Stray, which comes in at number three. The adventure game - starring a cat, no less - has made significant waves over in the PlayStation community since its digital release earlier this year.

Otherwise, there's little change to the norm, though we ought to give a shout out to Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which has once again entered the top ten, climbing eight places from its previous position. In terms of sales split, the Switch version accounted for almost half of its total sales at 49%.
