Top 10 UK Games Chart: Racing Games Can't Keep Up With Super Mario Maker 2
Video games, start your engines!
Super Mario Maker 2 has kept its place atop the UK all-format physical sales chart, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. The Nintendo Switch exclusive has now been at No.1 for three consecutive weeks, and it stays ahead of an otherwise largely unchanged top 10.
Three racing games follow Super Mario Maker 2, with Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled at No.2, F1 2019 at No.3, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The week ending July 13 did see one new release enter the top 10, as Dragon Quest Builders 2 debuts at No.5. That did, however, launch on Friday, July 12, so had less time to make an impact than games already available. The only other new entry anywhere in the chart is the physical launch of Hollow Knight on PS4 and Switch, which finishes at No.34.
Super Mario Maker 2 is another great addition to the Switch's library of exclusive games, according to our critic, Peter Brown. "The Mario series is worth all the admiration it gets, and Super Mario Maker 2 is an excellent tool for picking it apart by pushing its enemies, mechanisms, and Mario, to their limit," he said. "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.
"Mario Maker 2 makes the learning process intuitive and enjoyable. Most importantly, it's enabled designers amateur and professional alike to share their creativity with the world. The community is off to a great start, and thankfully, the fun has only just begun." You can read more in our full Super Mario Maker 2 review.
