In a quiet week for new releases FIFA 21 has returned to the top of the charts, with Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contract 2 the lone new entry.

Two weeks ago it wasn’t even in the top 10 and yet now FIFA 21 is, once again, the UK number one, its sudden rise in popularity due to the upcoming Euro 2020 tournament (postponed from last year because of the coronavirus).

There’s very little other movement in the chart, although Nintendo evergreens Animal Crossing and Mario Kart both saw a boost in sales, that pushed them into the top three.

The only new entry of the week was Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contract 2 at number 12, which managed to slip out without any reviews or significant marketing.
