Just as the Olympic Games draw to a close, SEGAâ€™s official Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 tie-in climbs to #3 in the UK all-formats top 40 chart – its highest-ever chart position.
The sports compendium claimed #11 at launch and was at #8 last week.
F1 2021 remains the UKâ€™s no.1 for a third week running. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe moved up to #2, suggesting a Switch sales spike last week, while Animal Crossing: New Horizons held onto #4.
At #5, down from #2, itâ€™s Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on Switch.
The ever-popular Minecraft and GTA V fell to #6 and #7, respectively.
Positions #8, #9 and #10 are then held by re-entries â€“ Assassinâ€™s Creed Valhalla, Super Mario 3D World + Bowserâ€™s Fury, and Marvelâ€™s Avengers. All three sat just outside of the top ten last week.
Despite last week being remarkably quiet for new releases, there is one fresh face within the top 40 â€“ the physical release of Spiritfarer at #35. It actually managed to outsell FIFA 21, which for some reason, has plummeted from #9 to #37.
