Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has returned to the top spot on UK physical sales chart for the week ending on 13 July 2019. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order debuts at number two while Super Mario Maker 2 slips to the third spot.

Beenox's remake of the iconic kart racer - Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled - has reclaimed the top spot on the UK Sales charts from Nintendo's titles, in the week ending on 13 July 2019.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is followed by Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, which released last week, exclusively for Switch. Another Nintendo title that dominated the charts over the last few weeks - Super Mario Maker 2 - has dropped from the top spot to the third place.

According to UKIE/GfK data, only 500 units separate Super Mario Maker 2 in third and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled in the first place.

Many other games on the list enjoyed big boosts last week. This is a result of Amazon Prime Day sale, which helped Marvel's Spider-man to re-enter the top 10 list from No.21. Also, Rockstar's mammoth Red Dead Redemption 2 saw a 142 per cent increase in sales, which was more than enough to push it to the fifth spot on the list.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and FIFA 19 saw the biggest increase in sales when compared to last week. Black Ops 4 numbers are higher for 310 per cent while FIFA 19 saw a 219 per cent increase.
