In a relatively uneventful week when it comes to physical releases, Nintendo's Super Mario Maker 2 has managed to win the third week on the trot in UK's physical sales chart, again followed by Activision's Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.

Sales of Nintendo's Super Mario level builder have dipped by 38 per cent in the game's third week on the shelves, beating the second-placed Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled by around 1,000 copies. 

Nevertheless, it's a pretty good result for Super Mario Maker 2, as third-week sales drops are generally much higher than 38 per cent, so Mario's still cruising for the time being.

Activision and Beenox's remake of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled once again came in second, in spite of the 31 drop in sales, which again is not too shabby.

The arcade racer may not have matched Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy's eight weeks on top, but it's doing pretty well. Its only first place came in the week it launched, after which Super Mario Maker 2 sort of stole its wind. 

Codemasters' F1 2019 again came in third, and while its sales are still on par with F1 2018, Nintendo and Activision ensured that the F1 simulation stays put at third.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe came in fourth place, while the only new release came in at fifth - Dragon Quest Builders 2. 

Dragon Quest Builders 2 launched in Japan a while ago, but its global release wasn't until last week, so it's a pretty good result for a game that's technically a few months away from being a year old.

Grand Theft Auto V continues its timeless tradition in sixth place, while NetherRealm Studios' fighter Mortal Kombat 11 jumped up three spots and now sits in seventh.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate dipped by just as many positions, followed by Red Dead Redemption 2 and FIFA 19, whose absence from the top 10 last week is as rare as snow in July.
