Top 10 UK Games Chart: Super Mario Maker 2 Builds On Its Success
Super Mario Maker 2 built on its early sales success, finishing at the top of the UK all-format sales chart for the second time. The Nintendo Switch exclusive held its place atop the physical chart despite strong competition from Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, according to sales monitor Chart-Track.
The CTR remaster still manages a podium finish at No. 2 in its third week on sale. F1 2019, meanwhile, maintains its No.3 spot for the week ending July 6.
Nintendo Switch exclusives enjoy a strong week, with four titles in the top 10 in total. Aside from Mario Maker, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes in at No.4, while Super Smash Bros. Ultimate rises to No.5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild completes the sweep at No.9. No new titles entered the chart this week.
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.
