Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has crashed out of the first place after less than a week but to be fair, there's not much Activision could've done to prevent Nintendo's Super Mario Maker 2 from storming to the top of UK's physical sales.

In fact, Super Mario Maker 2 has already become Nintendo's best launch of the year, displacing New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe from that spot. 

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled failed to even come close to N. Sane Trilogy's eight weeks on top, but it still did fairly well.

Sales of Activision and Beenox's arcade racer have dropped 48 per cent compared to the week before, which is expected for the second week on the shelves and is considered a good result.

If you're a Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled owner, there's a hefty update coming your way, which you can read about here .

Nintendo have been firing on all cylinders recently, and you can see a few of their titles in the top ten, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate included. 

Codemasters' Formula One simulation F1 2019 has reached third place, pulling off sales identical to those of F1 2018. Unfortunately, the timing and other factors have resulted in only third place.

Sega's PlayStation 4 exclusive Judgement has had its worldwide release and it came in fourth place.

It's again Nintendo time in fifth place, with Mario Kart 8, followed by Rockstar's cowboynanza Red Dead Redemption. 

Eternally young Grand Theft Auto V came in seventh, while Assassin's Creed: Odyssey took advantage of Ubisoft's discounts and increased its weekly sales by 136 per cent.

Strangely enough, FIFA 19 took a tumble from second place last week , to 20th place, which is not something you see happen often with EA's traditionally pretty chart-stable sports simulation.

Take not that including digital sales would skew the picture significantly, so take physical sales as a mere indicator of popularity. The remainder of the chart is as follows:

  • Super Mario Maker 2
  • Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
  • F1 2019
  • Judgement
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Assassin's Creed: Odyssey
  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
