UK Charts: Nintendo Switch Sports Gets Knocked Down A Peg

We’ve got the latest UK charts data and it’s looking very similar to last week, albeit with some minor notable changes.

Nintendo Switch Sports, having enjoyed three weeks at the top of the pile, slips down into second place as Horizon: Forbidden West climbs back into number one. The Zero Dawn sequel has enjoyed a significant boost in sales with an increase in PlayStation 5 hardware stock across the UK, along with a brand new bundle containing the game itself.

Otherwise, it’s largely business as usual. Evil Dead: The Game slipped out of the top ten into twelfth place, paving the way for Gran Turismo 7 to sneak back in at number ten. The Switch games remain relatively unchanged, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons staying in fourth and ninth place respectively, though Pokemon Legends: Arceus managed to hop up one spot and land into fifth place.

Meanwhile, it seems that everyone who was going to buy Kirby and the Forgotten Land has already picked it up, as the pink blob’s latest outing falls out of the top forty altogether, behind the likes of Sonic Forces and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.
