This week's UK boxed sales charts data has been released, and as you might have expected, it's a head-to-head between two of the week's biggest releases.

Spots number one and two for the week ending October 21st are occupied by Marvel's Spider-Man 2 and Super Mario Bros. Wonder, respectively, both of which are, of course, new entries.

In third place, it's EA Sports FC 24, which has been dominant in the charts in previous weeks. That's no big surprise, considering the game managed to garner 11 million players during its first week.

Sonic Superstars hasn't reached the top spot in this week's UK boxed sales charts, but it hasn't done too badly.

Fourth place goes to Sonic Superstars, which TechRaptor's Christian Buckley awarded 8 out of 10 in his review. Could Sonic Team finally be back on track? Let's hope so. 

In fifth, it's Assassin's Creed Mirage, Ubisoft's back-to-basics stealth sandbox that should be a great time for anyone who's sick of more recent RPG-focused entries in the series (like me, for instance).

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is in sixth place, because no matter how many blue shells and banana skins get thrown at it, this game just will not quit the race.

Seventh place goes to Red Dead Redemption, which received a boxed release recently after being ported to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Hogwarts Legacy, another game that seems like it's sticking around for the long haul, is in eighth place, with Minecraft bringing up ninth.

Finally, Nintendo Switch Sports has managed to find its way into tenth place again, proving that sometimes, all you want is to swing a virtual tennis racket around for a while.

Eleventh to fifteenth places in the charts this week run as follows: Star Wars Jedi: SurvivorGrand Theft Auto VThe Witcher III: Wild Hunt Game of the Year EditionCall of Duty: Modern Warfare II, and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
