Proving that you can’t keep a good plumber down, New Super Mario Bros. U on Switch is the UK’s new no.1.

The ever-informative GI.biz reports launch week physical sales were almost 25% higher than the Wii U version’s launch week. That’s pretty impressive – NSMBU launched alongside the Wii U itself.

This means the four Switch titles have now managed to take the UK chart top spot – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Tennis Aces, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition didn’t perform too badly either, entering at #11.

Going back to the top ten, FIFA 19, RDR2, Black Ops 4, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate dropped one position each to occupy positions #2 through to #5.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe moved up to #6, Battlefield V fell to #7, good old GTA V re-entered the top ten at #8 – up from #16 – while Crash Bandicoot dropped one place, now at #9.

Xbox One pack-in Forza Horizon 4 then sees us out at #10.

The popular Spyro: Reignited Trilogy left the top ten, meanwhile, falling from #9 to #13.
