There may be very little new in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo’s latest Switch re-release from claiming a second week at no.1.

Due to a certain horror game launching on Friday, a third week at the top of the chart looks incredibly unlikely. There’s no doubting it’ll remain in the top ten for a while, though.

At #2 we have a new entry – Bandai-Namco’s Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. Reviews went a live late last week and were incredibly positive, resulting in an 82% Metacritic.

The usual faces show up in the rest of the top ten, merely swapping positions. RDR2 held onto #3, Black Ops 4 remained at #4, while FIFA 19 dropped three places to #5.

At #6 it’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fell one position to #7, GTA V stayed put at #8, and both Crash and Spyro re-entered the top ten at #9 and #10 (respectively).

Sadly, it looks like Tales of Vesperia won’t be sticking around for long. After debuting at a respectable #9 last week, the JRPG is now at #32. Chances of it making another week in the top 40 are slim.
