The final UK top 40 for 2017 was published earlier today, revealing a trio of Switch titles in the top ten.

Super Mario Odyssey was the highest placing, making #6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda: Breath of the Wild both re-entered the top ten meanwhile, taking #9 and #10, with Zelda rising a whole ten places from last week.

This appears to have pushed PUBG out of top ten – the popular shooter is now at #11.

Not unusually for this time of year, there was no movement in the top five. This means Call of Duty: WWII has claimed a ninth week at no.1. If it can manage just two more weeks it’ll be on par with the current franchise record holder – Black Ops III, with 11 non-consecutive weeks at no.1.

January’s biggest releases – Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ – aren’t due until the 26th, so it’s likely CoD: WWII will keep hold of the top spot until then.

Running down the rest of the top five, FIFA 18 is at #2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 remains at #3, AC: Origins is at #4 and good old GTA V sees us out at #5.

No new arrivals made the top 40 but a few games managed to re-enter lower down in the chart, including a triple-whammy of Bethesda titles – Prey (#37), DOOM (#39), and The Evil Within 2 (#40).

    So much grabbing wind

    This time last year almost everyone was writing the Switch off as “another Wii U”.

    The company has turned their fortunes around dramatically. Why shouldn’t that be reported and commented upon?

  • The Watcher

    Its a Wii U souped up and combined with the DS handheld.

  • NonShinyGoose

    Two great systems combined into one. It’s no wonder it’s a hit.

    Or all of Nintendos eggs in one basket
