UK charts: Gran Turismo 7 remains No.1 this week


The latest UK boxed-video game software charts have come though and there’s no change at the top for Gran Turismo 7 for the week ending 19th March. All eyes were on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this week as the entertaining Booster Course Pass launched on Friday with two new Cups. However, the game fell out of the top ten to No.11. Digital sales for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe could have risen, but Nintendo doesn’t reveal digital sales data, so we won’t know. Here’s the latest physical UK charts for week ending 19th March.

“The big shake-up in this week’s boxed charts is due to a number of price promotions on major Nintendo Switch games. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond rose 21 places to No.5 after a 564% sales jump, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is up 15 places to No.6 due to a 288% sales rise, and Pokémon Shining Pearl re-enters the Top 40 entirely at No.9.

Also re-entering the charts is Metroid Dread, which is now at No.14. The Nintendo Switch game is now the third biggest selling Metroid game in the franchise’s 35-year history, and that is without factoring in digital (this is purely boxed retail sales).

All of this activity does mean that Mario Kart 8: Deluxe takes a rare week outside of the Top Ten, it fell five places to No.11 after a 20% drop in sales week-on-week. The fall in sales is despite the arrival of new Mario Kart DLC this week — the first expansion for the game in almost five years.”
