Mario Kart, FIFA and Animal Crossing dominate year-end UK sales

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, FIFA 22 Y Animal Crossing: New Horizons have been the top three best-selling physical games in the UK over the past week, which runs from December 26, 2021 to January 1 from 2022. The list shared by analysis firm GfK shows that five of the ten best-selling titles are published by Nintendo, although the sales of another title (Just Dance 2022) probably also correspond to the Switch version.

Regarding the changes in the list, the slight rise (from fifth to fourth place) in Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Usually, when the title of Insomniac Games appears in the British top 10 it is corresponds with the arrival of new PS5 consoles to UK stores.

During this week they also reappear Pokémon Shiny Diamond / Shimmering Pearl in the top, in sixth and thirteenth position respectively (the sales of each edition are counted separately), after the last week they disappeared out of the top ten best-selling games.

Perhaps due to the end of Christmas promotions and discounts, there are several titles that leave the list. Battlefield 2042 drops from eighth to 16th. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy go down ten places to number 20, just like F1 2021, which appears 21. There is no news this week, but Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 (32) and NBA 2K22 (39) have returned to the top 40.
