Three Switch titles feature in 2017’s final UK top ten

The final UK top 40 for 2017 was published earlier today, revealing a trio of Switch titles in the top ten.

Super Mario Odyssey was the highest placing, making #6. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda: Breath of the Wild both re-entered the top ten meanwhile, taking #9 and #10, with Zelda rising a whole ten places from last week.

This appears to have pushed PUBG out of top ten – the popular shooter is now at #11.

Not unusually for this time of year, there was no movement in the top five. This means Call of Duty: WWII has claimed a ninth week at no.1. If it can manage just two more weeks it’ll be on par with the current franchise record holder – Black Ops III, with 11 non-consecutive weeks at no.1.

January’s biggest releases – Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ – aren’t due until the 26th, so it’s likely CoD: WWII will keep hold of the top spot until then.

Running down the rest of the top five, FIFA 18 is at #2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 remains at #3, AC: Origins is at #4 and good old GTA V sees us out at #5.

No new arrivals made the top 40 but a few games managed to re-enter lower down in the chart, including a triple-whammy of Bethesda titles – Prey (#37), DOOM (#39), and The Evil Within 2 (#40).
