Top 10 UK Games Chart: Mario Maker 2, Judgment, More Chart Well In Busy Week
Super Mario Maker 2 tops the chart in its debut week.
Super Mario Maker 2 tops the UK physical sales chart for the week ending June 29, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. The platforming game debuts at No.1 in a busy week for new releases.
Nintendo's latest Switch exclusive beats competition from Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, which slips to No.2, and the newly released F1 2019 at No.3 and Judgment at No.4. Two more new releases manage a top 40 finish: The Sinking City debuts at No.12, while Car Mechanic Simulator takes its pit stop at No.23.
Super Mario Maker 2 has received critical acclaim, including an 8/10 from GameSpot. "What I've played so far has proven, once again, that the Mario series is worth all the admiration it gets, and Mario Maker 2 is an excellent tool for picking it apart by pushing its enemies, mechanisms, and Mario, to their limit," wrote critic Peter Brown in our Super Mario Maker 2 review-in-progress. "I've yet to make a stage of my own that I think is worthy of sending out to other players, but I'm committed to getting there. Whether exploring the full potential of a single element or throwing things at the wall to see what sticks, I've got the itch to join the creator's club. And thankfully, even if you aren't an instant success (like me), Mario Maker 2 makes the learning process intuitive and enjoyable."
