The first chart of the year sees little movement, to the point where the no.1s in every single format chart remains unchanged.
This means Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the UK’s no.1 for a second week running. FIFA 22 likewise stays put at #2, while Animal Crossing: New Horizons remains at #3.
At #4 it’s Minecraft on Switch, up from #7. Then at #5 it’s another non-mover â€“ Activision’s Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Finally, at #6, there’s a hint of action â€“ the gut-busting Ring Fit Adventure has made a gallant return, rising from #11.
PS5 launch title Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales fell from #4 to #7, PokÃ©mon Brilliant Diamond sank two positions to #8, Just Dance 2022 dropped to #9, and then at #10 it’s the evergreen GTA V â€“ up from #15.
Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain is starting to make headway, this week climbing from #26 to #11. Fellow Switch exclusive 51 Worldwide Games had a strong week too, re-entering the top 40 at #13 thanks to a price cut.
LEGO Jurassic World, Mario Golf: Star Rush and NBA 2K22 managed to re-enter at the lower end of the chart. Forza Horizon 5 looks set to already depart the top 40, meanwhile, currently at #40.
