Mario Golf: Super Rush has been on the top of the UK video game sales chart for the second week in a row. The game was able to retain the No. 1 position despite a 52% drop in sales week-on-week.
FIFA 21 remained in second place, despite an 11% decrease in sales. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe rose one place to the third position despite a 19% decrease in sales week-on-week, while Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which was in the third place last week, got pushed to the sixth position this week. The game has had a 54% drop in sales week-on-week. Animal Crossing: New Horizons also rose one position to fourth place, even though had a 22% decrease in sales.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild also had an increase in sales and landed at No.10. Sales of Zelda increased after the new trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel at E3 2021.
