Straight into first.
Mario Kart 8 was originally released back in 2014 for the Wii U and was a huge hit among gamers and critics who praised it for fun gameplay and attention to detail. Last week the game was ported to the Switch under the title of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and includes all the previously released DLC plus additional content. It looks like Nintendo gamers were only too happy to return to the game as it has managed to debut straight to the top of the UK game charts.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 debuts in second place and Grand Theft Auto V sits in third. Little Nightmares debuts in fourth whilst The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild brings up the rear in fifth. The top 20 are as follows:
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
