Original (1/10): This week’s UK software sales are in, with Switch having a busy past seven days. GamesIndustry reports that the console’s games dominated the boxed charts thanks to an increase of 123 percent compared with the same week in 2020.

Although Animal Crossing: New Horizons sales dropped 47 percent, it nonetheless took the top spot. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was next despite a 43 percent drop. Just Dance 2021 is third even with a 24 percent decrease, and it’s worth noting that nearly 90 of the game’s physical sales have been on Switch. Note that all game sales tend to drop during the first week of the year.

Ring Fit Adventure rose from #18 to #6 with a 24 percent sales increase. Minecraft (down 35 percent) and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe (down 32 percent) are in the top ten as well, though Super Mario 3D All-Stars (down 42 percent) slipped just a bit to #11.
