It's another new week and we have the latest UK charts for your perusal right here (you're welcome!). There are a few new additions to shake things up with Naughty Dog's The Last of Us: Part I coming in at pole position (despite, in our opinion, a pretty lofty asking price) along with F1 Manager 2022 entering the charts at number four.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection also makes its debut this week in third place. It's a respectable start for Konami's latest collection of classic titles, but what's more impressive is its performance on Nintendo's console specifically; Switch sales made up more than half of total boxed sales at 55%. PlayStation 5 followed up with 21%, then PlayStation 4 at 14%, and finally Xbox at 11%. It's important to remember, of course, that digital sales might paint a decidedly different picture, but it's certainly a strong start for the game on Switch.
Elsewhere, it's pretty much business as usual. Familiar faces like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nintendo Switch Sports, Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons make up a good chunk of the charts as usual, and it's definitely testament to their long-term appeal. Time will tell if they manage to cling on with the likes of Splatoon 3 and Pokémon Scarlet and Violet looming in the distance!
Here's this week's top ten in full:
Let's finish up this week's charts with a different question. With the likes of Bayonetta 3, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and Splatoon 3 launching in the coming weeks, what do you think the charts will look like at the end of the year? Let us know in the comments!
