The UK charts are here and it’s overall a relatively uneventful week for Nintendo this time around, with both Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom maintaining their strong presence in the top ten.

The biggest surprise this week belongs to Xbox, with the Starfield Premium Edition Upgrade entering the charts at number seven. The product – which contains a digital unlock code – allows for early access in addition to the eventual digital expansion, and its strong presence in the charts perhaps indicates that we may see more of this practice in the future (we definitely will).

The chart also has a new leader this week, with Hogwarts Legacy climbing to the top of the pile, demonstrating a particularly strong showing on PS5 with 48% of the platform split. As a reminder, Avalanche Software’s open-world wizard title is still coming to the Switch and is now scheduled to release on November 14th.

Here’s this week’s UK top forty in full:
