As the Nintendo Switch celebrates its first birthday, the system’s big-name titles show no signs of waning in popularity.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – the UK’s best-selling Switch game – is up four places in the UK chart, taking #4. Super Mario Odyssey rises from #9 to #6, while Zelda: BotW climbs from #16 to #9.

Zelda’s surge may have something to do with a minor price drop of the Wii U iteration – the Wii U version attributed to 12% of BotW’s sales last week.

If you’ve ever wondered if new Wii U games are still being purchased 2018, now you know the answer.

FIFA 18 on Switch is still doing well, too, outselling the Xbox One version last week.

The UK’s top three remains unchanged, meaning FIFA 18 tops the chart for a seventh week running, and is followed by GTA V and Call of Duty: WWII.

Metal Gear Survive – which we reviewed yesterday – departs the top ten after just one week meanwhile, falling from #6 to #17.

Muddy racer Gravel didn’t have spectacular launch either, arriving at a lowly #42. It may manage to make a belated appearance in next week’s top 40 – we imagine last week’s snow shenanigans prevented some gamers from venturing outdoors.
