Really can’t believe the legs on MK8 - wow. AC:NH also doing amazingly well still, ten months after release and so happy to see SM3DAS still in the UK top ten - this must be the best a Nintendo console has done in the UK for a very long time.

Yeah. I've been thinking that too. 5 in the top 10 and holding the top 2. Interesting that 3 of the top 5 games are more than 6 years old at the least. And all 3 of them are still selling so well due to ports to newer systems.
