We’ve got the latest UK Charts for your curious eyes and its another strong week for Nintendo, with Splatoon 3 once again coming in at number one.

The sequel launched on September 9th to critical acclaim (including our own glowing review) and has clearly proven to be a smash hit with audiences. Over in Japan, it performed even better, becoming the fastest selling Switch game within just three days of its launch.

It marks another strong week for Nintendo, whose first-party titles make up five spots in the top ten charts, including evergreen games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Nintendo Switch Sports, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

On other platforms, Horizon Forbidden West is still performing remarkably well, no doubt in part due to the PlayStation 5 bundle that includes the console and a copy of the game itself. The Last of Us Part 1, meanwhile, is just about hanging in there at number ten, dropping six places from its previous position at number 4.

As for GTA V… Come on, who doesn’t own that game yet?

Anyway, here are your charts for this week:
