UK Charts: Four Switch Exclusives Make The Top Ten, But Ratchet & Clank Takes First - Nintendo Life
Jun 14, 2021 3 mins, 24 secs

UK physical chart data is now in for the week ending 12th June, revealing that PS5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has gone straight to number one.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, Insomniac Games' latest platformer has sold "in-line with" Switch exclusives New Pokémon Snap and Monster Hunter Rise in its opening week.

On the Nintendo front, four of the top games are exclusive to Switch (that's counting the Switch edition of Minecraft which is treated as its own, separate version).

Mario Kart is leading the charge, but expect Mario Golf: Super Rush to make its presence felt when it launches later this month.

He’d much rather just have a night in with Mario Kart and a pizza, and we can’t say we blame him.

It’s a great game in a great franchise.

People buying Mario Kart 8 now have no idea they have to buy Mario Kart 9 in a few months too.

How is it possible that Mario Kart is still on the Top 10 after four years?

@Brydontk and lets be honest, it’s a 7 year old game!.

We're never gonna get a new Mario Kart, it feels like.

The Switch has digital sales in Japan too.

Now looks like another PS5 exclusive is turning off Japanese fans.

I'd really like to see game sales number vs the install base number?

Either game was bought by everyone w/ a console, or, a lot of people w/o a PS5 pre-ordered the game and didn't bother to cancel.

@rjejr not that crazy for people to be gathering a library for a console they still plan to buy at some point, especially since PS Store allows it - it's not like Nintendo eShops which won't sell (or even redeem) you a game until your account has its respective console registered.

And it's a port, just goes to show how strong the Mario kart brand is, and how awesome the Switch software ratio is on first party Nintendo games.

@tntswitchfan68 game didn't release until the 11th in Japan so how would it be in last week's chart.

Anyway great to see R&C doing well, it's an amazing game and probably the first that's looked truly next gen

What a great game

That game you like is trash and you shouldn’t feel validated by its success

However, the game I like is amazing, and the general public are idiots for not buying enough copies to put it ahead of your game

It's why Nintendo only release one version of Mario Kart per console, and why we won't be seeing Mario Kart 9 on Switch

Mario Kart 9 exclusive to Switch Pro IF it exists, is the only way we're seeing a new MK this/next year

It was very funny and quirky JRPG game from Nintendo

I have never played quirky game like that

This is why Nintendo won't be making another MK for Switch anytime soom

@nhSnork BUT, unlike Nintendo which is still selling 4 year old games like Zelda BotW for $60, and you still need to pay an extra $20 for a green line on the over world map, most Sony gamers know Ratchet & Clank will be $20 this Black Friday, so if you don't have a PS5 yet, just wait a few months and get it much cheaper

Crazy how Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is still the fastest-selling game of the year so far at UK retail
