Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

UK physical chart data is now in for the week ending 12th June, revealing that PS5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has gone straight to number one.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, Insomniac Games’ latest platformer has sold “in-line with” Switch exclusives New Pokémon Snap and Monster Hunter Rise in its opening week. Chivalry 2 is another top ten newcomer this week, landing in ninth spot.

On the Nintendo front, four of the top games are exclusive to Switch (that’s counting the Switch edition of Minecraft which is treated as its own, separate version). Mario Kart is leading the charge, but expect Mario Golf: Super Rush to make its presence felt when it launches later this month.

Poor Jeff!
Poor Jeff!

UK physical chart data is now in for the week ending 29th May, revealing that Miitopia has fallen to ninth spot in its second week on sale.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the RPG’s physical sales fell by 45% week-on-week, leaving it a little shy of the chart’s top spots this time around. In total, four Switch exclusives made their way into the top ten, with Animal Crossing: New Horizons leading the pack.

On the whole, though, it was PlayStation’s turn to shine. Thanks to a number of discounts at retail, games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and The Last of Us: Part 2 saw much-improved sales this week.

New Eurovision war as Italy and UK are within one spot of each other in UK charts

New Eurovision war as Italy and UK are within one spot of each other in UK charts
Over the weekend the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 hit screens, pitting the continent’s biggest and best stars against one another. The final winner of the competition was Italy’s entry, Maneskin, who claimed a staggering 524 points with their song Zitti E Buoni. The UK, on the other hand, was left with nul points.
The UK star, James Newman, does have a chance of redemption, however.

Currently, in the UK’s Official Singles Chart Top 40, James has claimed number 36 in the charts with his Eurovision song Embers.

If he retains this position – or achieves a higher spot – James’ song will become the highest-charting song from the competition on the Official Charts.

After a flurry of downloads over the past 48 hours, Embers is also the third-most downloaded track in the UK so far this week.

James is not out of the woods just yet, though.

Hot on his heels is Italy’s aforementioned artist, Maneskin.

With their song, Zitti E Buoni, the band are currently number 37 on the Official Singles Chart Top 40.

Over the next three days, James is going to have to fight for his spot on the Top 40 list, otherwise he may lose to the Eurovision winners for the second time in a week.

James is also at risk of being overtaken by other members of the Eurovision Song Contest.

While there are a few other entries on the list, Iceland’s band Daði Freyr are the highest at the moment.

Currently, they rank number 49 on the Top 100 with their song 10 Years.

If Daði Freyr does achieve a Top 40 hit, it will be his second in two consecutive years.

Last year the Icelandic singer’s Eurovision track Think About Things reached number 34 in the Top 40 after its popularity spiked online.

Despite the ongoing battle for James Newman to remain at the top of his home country’s charts, he has recently spoken out about his next steps in the music industry.

After receiving nul points in the competition, James told his Twitter followers: “I want to focus on the positives of this amazing experience. I stood on a stage and sang to hundreds of millions of people with a song that I wrote and love.

“I learnt so much from the amazing people who gave everything to help me live my dream, the dancers, my choreographer, my vocal coach, everyone from my label, my manager and the BBC and all the people behind the scenes at Eurovision and the arena.”

no guarantee that a song you think will connect with people, will connect with an audience.

“The times when it doesn’t play out how you hoped it might, teach you how to pick yourself up and be stronger.”

Maneskin’s win was the first triumph for Italy in 31 years. The country’s last win was in 1992 with band Toto Cutugno.

Monster Hunter Rise

Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for the week ending 25th April, revealing that Monster Hunter Rise has fallen from first place for the first time since its launch last month.

Rise’s sales are understandably continuing to drop slightly week-on-week, with this week’s 86,258 estimated physical sales leaving it just shy of two million in total. Those 86,000 sales weren’t enough to match PS4 newcomer NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, which debuted with a strong 108,838 physical sales.

Elsewhere, the new Atelier Mysterious Trilogy DX Premium Box also debuted in the top ten on Switch with 6,022 copies sold, and the usual Nintendo first-party suspects can be found making up the rest of the chart.

Here are the top ten (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):

  10. [NSW] Atelier Mysterious Trilogy DX Premium Box (Koei Tecmo, 04/22/21) – 6,022 (New)

Switch remains on top in the hardware charts, too, with sales of the original model seeing a very decent boost this week. Here are this week’s figures, followed by lifetime sales in brackets:

Japanese Charts: Huge Debut For Monster Hunter Rise Sends Switch Sales Through The Roof

Monster Hunter

Famitsu’s Japanese chart figures are now in for the week ending 28th March, revealing that Monster Hunter Rise has had a – ahem – monstrous launch in Nintendo’s home region.

The game sold a whopping 1,302,132 physical copies in its opening weekend, dominating the charts and leading the pack by a ridiculous margin. Second place went to Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, which sold another 37,166 physical copies to put its current lifetime total up to 592,683.

We haven’t seen a launch in Japan like this for any game since Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which sold a staggering 1,880,626 physical copies in its first three days on sale in the country.

Here are the top ten (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):


  1. [NSW] Monster Hunter Rise (Capcom, 03/26/21) – 1,302,132 (New)
  2. [NSW] Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (Nintendo, 02/12/21) – 37,166 (592,683)
  3. [NSW] The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬: Summer Memories Also Come in Five (Mages., 03/25/21) – 20,374 (New)
  4. [NSW] Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! (Konami, 11/19/20) – 20,179 (2,072,296)
  5. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 04/28/17) – 13,207 (3,751,594)
  6. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 10/18/19) – 12,632 (2,479,573)
  7. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo, 03/20/20) – 11,145 (6,710,861)
  8. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 06/21/18) – 11,096 (1,872,739)
  9. [PS4] The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬: Summer Memories Also Come in Five (Mages., 03/25/21) – 10,378 (New)
  10. [NSW] Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo, 12/07/18) – 10,270 (4,218,939)

The Monster Hunter launch had a huge knock-on effect in the hardware chart, too, with sales of both the Switch and Switch Lite rising significantly. The original model saw the biggest boost, which is perhaps to be expected owing to the nature of Rise’s gameplay. Here are this week’s figures, followed by lifetime sales in brackets:

  1. Switch – 190,133 (15,558,365)
  2. Switch Lite – 77,364 (3,526,983)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 51,931 (485,476)
  4. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 10,364 (94,735)
  5. PlayStation 4 – 2,174 (7,775,056)
  6. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 933 (1,160,124)
  7. Xbox Series S – 847 (9,373)
  8. Xbox Series X – 432 (30,636)
  9. PlayStation 4 Pro – 15 (1,575,723)
