Itâ€™s that magical time of year where FIFA and Call of Duty spend the run-up to Xmas battling for the UK chart top spot. This week itâ€™s the turn of new release Call of Duty: Vanguard, which also claims no.1 in the PS5, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X physical charts.Ð±Ð°Ð½ÐºÐ¸ Ð°Ð²Ñ‚Ð¾ÐºÑ€ÐµÐ´Ð¸Ñ‚Ñ‹ Ð»ÑƒÑ‡ÑˆÐ¸Ðµ Ð¿Ñ€ÐµÐ´Ð»Ð¾Ð¶ÐµÐ½Ð¸Ñ
FIFA 22 falls to #2 for the first time since launch. At #3 itâ€™s the best-selling physical Switch release of the week â€“ Mario Party Superstars, which is no.1 in the Switch top 20.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sticks around at #4, having now broken Mario Kart Wii’s sales record. Then at #5 itâ€™s the return of Marvelâ€™s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, up from #17.
Ghost of Tsushima: Directors Cut re-enters at #24 too, suggesting a PS5 restock took place last week. Incidentally, both Immortals: Fenyx Rising and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order returned at #12 and #21 (respectively) which may be down to bundling.
The well-received Marvelâ€™s Guardians of the Galaxy follows behind Miles Morales, falling to #6 during its second week on sale.
Despite new DLC arriving last Friday, Animal Crossing: New Horizons dropped to #7. Minecraft on Switch also fell to #8.
A new arrival takes #9, and a surprise one at that â€“ itâ€™s the Fortnite Minty Legends Pack, published by Epic Games. The accessory pack has performed well, taking #8 in the Switch chart â€“ putting it ahead of Metroid Dread â€“ plus #7 in the PS4 chart and a respectable #4 in the Xbox Series chart.
Far Cry 6 rounds off this weekâ€™s UK top ten. Ubisoftâ€™s own Just Dance 2022 had to settle for #11, although it should be noted that Just Dance games always take a week or two to climb the charts, suggesting they sell by word of mouth.
Fast & Furious: Spy Racers â€“ Rise of Sh1ft3r was the only other new arrival, parking up at #40 in the all-formats physical chart. The only individual format chart it managed to break was the Xbox Series chart, which comes as a mild surprise. Then again, it likely has extremely easy achievements.
