EA Sports' UFC 4 saw a great debut as it topped the charts in UK, outselling Animal Crossing: New Horizons which was the reigning king previously.

Another week, another analysis of UK Charts. Animal Crossing has had a great run on the top for weeks on end but it is time for new games to flourish and UFC 4 is just that.

The game has launched in the week that kicked off on Monday, August 10, 2020, and reached the top of the charts by beating everything else on the ladder. Considering the game was received favourably by critics and somewhat positively depending on your console of choice, it is not quite weird that it came out on top.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been the king of the hill for several weeks previously and didn't really drop this week as it's only UFC 4 that surpassed it in sales. 

The third spot is also occupied by a Nintendo entry, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which retained its place since it didn't move up or down. In other words, it outsold Ghost of Tsushima which was ahead of the plumber's racing crew one week before. Sony's title is now in #4, followed by another EA Sports title in the top five, which is FIFA 20.

Full list of top 10 sellers in UK along with their previous week performance is as follows:
