With the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc on the high street and more consumers choosing digital than ever before, FIFA 21’s physical sales are down year-over-year in the UK. EA Sports’ latest soccer sim sold 42 per cent fewer copies than its predecessor, but still managed to cement itself as the biggest new release of the year, beating out juggernauts like The Last of Us: Part II.
In all honesty, it’s a big week for the Nintendo Switch, with a wealth of the system’s evergreen titles dominating the top ten. Star Wars: Squadrons managed to hold on to second position, while Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time settled for third. Beyond that, and Marvel’s Avengers in ninth position, it’s the domain of Super Mario, Minecraft, and Animal Crossing.
