Another Nintendo Switch exclusive debuts in top spot – UK charts

Pikmin 4

Pikmin 4 has surged to the top position on the weekly UK physical charts, making a remarkable debut for the latest installment in the beloved Pikmin franchise. Pikmin 4 has outperformed its predecessor, 2020’s Pikmin 3: Deluxe, by a staggering 45% in sales.

In other chart news, a noteworthy new entry has emerged at No. 3 in the rankings. The Sims 4 Horse Ranch, which was released on July 20, has galloped its way onto the charts, but not without some mixed reception. Parts of the Sims community have criticized EA, characterizing the game as more of a game pack than a full-fledged expansion. That is a notable distinction in this case, as EA sells expansions at a higher price point.

As for other popular titles, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has slipped down to No. 4, experiencing a 23% decline in sales, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has shifted down one spot to claim the No. 5 position.

Among the noteworthy movers and shakers, Diablo IV has demonstrated resilience, ascending from its previous position at No. 13 to a commendable No. 10, despite a 13% dip in sales. Conversely, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor has experienced a significant setback, falling sharply from No. 8 to No. 18, enduring a substantial 60% decline in sales.

Another fairly recent release, Street Fighter 6, has witnessed an impressive 65% surge in sales, propelling it to the respectable No. 14 spot. Additionally, Super Mario Odyssey has demonstrated staying power, moving up from No. 22 to No. 17 within the last week.

Lastly, the Dark Souls trilogy by FromSoftware has enjoyed a lucrative sales boost of 87%, securing its place at No. 22, following a strategic price promotion on the Steam platform. Notably, the most recent FromSoftware title, Elden Ring, is still in the top ten, moving up one spot to No. 9 this week.
