After the slight delay of last week's UK boxed charts, you would be forgiven for thinking that this week's may be much of the same again; but with a whole bunch of new releases, the data has been well and truly shaken up.

Yes, FIFA 23 still holds onto the top spot like a leech, but this week has seen two great openings for Nintendo. Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope comes straight out of the gates in at number three, proving itself to be a franchise which is ever-growing in popularity despite being a somewhat unusual pitch, and Persona 5 Royal lands the number six spot with an impressive 79% of sales coming from the Switch (Playstation 5 made up 17% while Xbox Series X|S accounted for 4%).

Splatoon 3 continues to slip down the charts in its seventh week on sale, now appearing at number seven, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the other Nintendo mainstays such as Nintendo Switch Sports and Animal Crossing: New Horizons prove that it is going to take substantially more than four new releases to push them out of the charts.

Anyhow, that's quite enough chit chat from us! Here is your look at this week's UK charts:
