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.

Considering it’s still the talk of gaming town, it comes as no surprise to find God of War holding onto no.1 for the second week running.

And yes, it did face competition. The catchily named Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit entered at #3 – also topping the Switch chart – while the slightly more expensive Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 02: Robot Kit made #20 (#5 in the Switch chart).

Sticking with Switch, the handheld iteration of South Park: The Fractured But Whole propelled Ubisoft’s crude cartoon tie-in to #19 in the all-formats top 40.

GamesIndustry.biz reports the arrival of Labo helped shift additional Switch systems, as all the usual stalwarts (Zelda, Mario Kart 8, et al) enjoyed sales boosts last week.

Going back to the top ten, Far Cry 5, FIFA 18 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remained at #2, #4 and #5 respectively. Fallout 4 rose one place to take #6 while Call of Duty: WWII re-entered the top ten at #7, up from #19.

Super Mario Odyssey and PUBG both dropped a couple of places meanwhile, now at #8 and #9. Good old GTA V sees us out at #10.

We expected to see Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-Ality in the top 20, at the very least, but that was an unexpected no-show. It didn’t even manage to break the PS4 top 20.
