Swinging when you’re winning – Mario Tennis Aces takes UK chart top spot

Despite not featuring a traditional tennis mode – an omission that has allegedly resulted in refund requests – Mario Tennis Aces has shot straight to the top of the UK chart.

While this may sound impressive, chances are it only had to shift a few thousand copies to get there – physical sales tend to slump massively during this time of year.

There was very little to challenge it either, with just Minecraft and Another World on Switch making the top 40 (at #21 and #26 respectively).

FIFA 18 holds onto #2, God of War – last week’s chart-topper – drops to #3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rises to #4, while Fallout 4 falls two places to #5.

Detroit: Become Human also falls two places, now at #6. The ever-popular GTA V is at #7, Call of Duty: WWII rises to #8, Super Mario Odyssey is back in the top ten at #9, and then at #10 it’s the recently reduced PlayStation VR Worlds.

Vampyr and AC Origins also both leave the top ten this week, falling to #9 and #27.
