Animal Crossing Re-Claims Top Spot In UK Sales Chart
PGA Tour 2K21 failed to take the top spot on its debut week in the UK sales chart, thanks to Animal Crossing: New Horizons reclaiming the top of the mountain. Animal Crossing: New Horizons was knocked off the top spot last week by EA’s UFC 4, which in reverse has been knocked down to third this week by both AC and PGA 2K21.
PGA Tour 2K21, the first PGA Tour title since EA released ‘Rory McIlory PGA Tour’ way back in 2015, had probably forecasted a number one spot seen as its the first entry from 2K and how popular golf titles usually do in the UK (Thinking of the Tiger Woods games).

As you can see from the latest sales chart above four titles from the Nintendo Switch made it into the top 10 (excluding FIFA 20). This shows the strong player-base the Nintendo Switch has here in the UK and the popularity of Animal Crossing: New Horizons which has stayed in the top 10 since the week of its release back in March.
