Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Nintendo released Mario Kart 8 Deluxe worldwide on Friday and it’s been enjoying success from reception and sales. It managed to chart at #1 in the UK, the first for Nintendo since 2011. [Thanks,]


Here’s a look at the UK top-ten of the week:

  1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  2. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Little Nightmares
  5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  6. LEGO Worlds
  7. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands
  8. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  9. FIFA 17
  10. Horizon: Zero Dawn


The last time Nintendo saw a #1 in the UK charts was in 2011 with Pokémon White on Nintendo DS. It also happens to be the first Mario game to get the top since Mario Kart Wii back in 2008.


It’s also noted that Puyo Puyo Tetris placed #14 with the majority of sales coming from the Nintendo Switch version of the puzzler.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is available on Nintendo Switch.
