Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Tops UK Sales Charts; Prey Debuts at Number 2 With Only One Day on the Market

on May 8, 2017 7:09 AM

The 18th week of the 2017 UK Sales Charts are in, and just like last week, Nintendo’s Mario Kart 8 enhanced Switch port, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, is once again the top dog.

As you may know, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe also topped last weeks’ Japanese sales charts from Media Create, and notably is the fast-selling entry in franchise history: selling 459,000 units just in the US, just in its first day.

Meanwhile, Prey from Arkane Studios and Bethesda notably grabs the number 2 spot, despite releasing on Friday, with the charts ending only a day later on Saturday.

Last week’s number 2 and 4, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and Little Nightmares respectively, fell to 13 and 12, again respectively.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 18 2017 (the week ended on May 6th):

It’s important to note this only includes physical sales, and not digital sales.
