Animal Crossing: New Horizons has retaken the top spot on the UK charts, according to GfK for the week ending May 9, 2020. Sales for the game jumped 135 percent week-on-week. This is due to an increase in physical copies of the game.

Grand Theft Auto V is up from fifth to second place as sales increased 47 percent. FIFA 20 dropped from first to third and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare drops one spot to fourth. Final Fantasy VII Remake has left the top 10 and dropped to 13th place.

It's interesting to me that Luigi's Mansion 3 is still just hanging out in the top 10.
It certainly seems to have hit a much broader audience that the first 2.
