FIFA 22 back at UK number one as Nintendo dominates – Games charts 27 November

EA might have the number one spot but six of the games in this week’s UK top 10 are Nintendo Switch titles.

With Black Friday over and Halo Infinite set to be the last major release of the year on Wednesday the UK charts aren’t likely to change much now until next year, unless there’s any last minute Christmas discounts.

That’s allowed FIFA 22 to float to the top of the charts but it’s Nintendo which is dominating, since if you include Just Dance 2022 – where 91% of sales are for the Switch version – they have seven of the top 10 sellers. (Although, unlike Japan, GfK count Pokémon games as two separate titles.)

Despite appearances, there were a couple of new entries in the charts last week, with Cricket 22: Official Game Of The Ashes entering at number 30 and Nintendo’s low-key Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brain debuting at number 36.
