Nintendo was the winner of this weekâ€™s UK chart battle, with new release Mario Golf: Super Rush managing to claim no.1 in the all-formats top 40.
It wasnâ€™t the only new arrival. Bandai-Namcoâ€™s multiformat action RPG Scarlet Nexus â€“ which boasts an impressive 80% Metacritic â€“ entered at #8.
SEGAâ€™s Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 – The Official Videogame debuted just outside the top ten at #11, while Merge Gamesâ€™ Alex Kidd in Miracle World DX took #17.
The launch of Tony Hawkâ€™s Pro Skater 1 & 2 on Switch also helped the remaster double-pack re-enter at #29. It only managed #19 in the Switch chart, though.
It wasnâ€™t good news for other recent releases â€“ Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 fell from #15 to #36 despite a strong start, while Metro Exodus: Complete Edition tumbled from #17 to #40.
Back in the top ten, FIFA 21 climbed to #2. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart â€“ last weekâ€™s chart-topper â€“ fell to #3 while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe held onto #4. Then at #5 itâ€™s Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhalla re-entered the top ten at #6, Minecraft on Switch climbed to #7, followed by Ring Fit Adventure at #8 â€“ up from #14.
Finally at #10 itâ€™s Super Mario 3D World + Bowerâ€™s Fury.
To make way for the new releases, Marvelâ€™s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Resident Evil Village and Minecraft Dungeons departed the top ten. All three stand a good chance of returning, especially Resident Evil Village, which has yet to receive a price drop.
