This is the first time Nintendo has had a game hit #1 since 2011.

This week Mario Kart 8 Deluxe hit #1 on the UK sales charts. The list is as follows:

  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

This is the first time since 2011 a Nintendo game has hit #1 on the UK sales chart. The last game was Pokemon White and the last Mario game was Mario Kart Wii in 2008.

It’ll be interesting to see if Nintendo can keep the momentum going with E3 right around the corner.
