No less than five titles in this week’s UK top ten are first-party exclusives.

God of War takes the top spot for a third week running, while newcomer Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze swings in at #2.

Tropical Freeze is technically a re-entry. According to GamesIndustry.biz though, only 44 copies were sold on Wii U last week. They also state that sales on Switch already account for 17% of Wii U version’s lifetime sales.

Far Cry 5 dropped one place to #3 while FIFA 18 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe held onto #4 and #5 (respectively).

Due to the popularity of a certain movie, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 is back in the top ten at #6, up from #12.

Fallout 4 hangs around at #7, PUBG rose to #8, Star Wars Battlefront 2 climbs to #9, and then at #10 it’s Super Mario Odyssey.

GTA V, Call of Duty: WWII, and the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Variety Kit were this week’s top ten dropouts, falling to #12, #13 and #14.

The Nintendo Labo Robot Kit has left the top 40 entirely, meanwhile.
