Mario Kart 8 Deluxe fends off Prey

Never underestimate the popularity of Mario Kart. Nintendo’s latest entry in the colourful kart racing series holds the UK chart top spot for a second week, fending off Bethesda’s Prey.

Prey had to settle for #2, with the PS4 version being the biggest selling despite the original being an Xbox 360 exclusive. That was a very long time ago, mind.

The rest of the top ten sees a slight shuffle, with all the usual faces present. GTA V, Infinite Warfare and LEGO Worlds occupy the remaining top five positions.

Rocket League, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, FIFA 17, Horizon Zero Dawn and Forza Horizon 3 then take positions #6 through to #10.

Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Little Nightmares and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 all depart the top ten meanwhile, falling to #11, #12 and #13 respectively.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series was the only other new entry aside Prey, storming in at #31. Persona 5 does make a re-appearance however, back in at #35 thanks to a second print run.
