Nintendo Switch has seen two games debut in UK all formats chart's top 40, although only Mario Tennis Aces has managed to break into top 10. As it stands now, it's sitting in first place, replacing Barlog and Co's dad simulator God of War.

God of War's only managed a week upon its returning stint on top, although it's more to do with the Days of Play program than anything else. You may recall that the Sony cheapathon has managed to boost sales of quite a few games on last week's chart, including God of War, Assassin's Creed: Origins and Call of Duty: WWII, the latter two by 61 and 130 percent.

FIFA 18 remains firmly second, so it's quite obvious what Brits are doing in breaks from the World Cup 2018 that's currently taking place in Russia. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, yet another Switch title, has climbed back three spots and sits in fourth place.

Fallout 4 seems to be milking the Fallout 76 hype for all it's worth, refusing to leave the top 10 for quite a few weeks now. Detroit: Become Human continues its slow decline, although much slower than you'd expect a singleplayer and PS exclusive title to. Needless to say, this bodes very well for David Cage and Quantic Dream.

Grand Theft Auto V, yet another game that simply refuses to leave the UK chart, is down one place in seventh, while Call of Duty: WWII continued its Days of Play-caused ascent from tenth to eight place.

Super Mario Odyssey, a Switch game, has managed quite the leap, coming in ninth, which is a five place jump. PlayStation VR Worlds, Sony's promotional game, or more like collection of games that gives you a proper taste of what VR technology has to offer, has dropped five spots and now sits in 10th place.
