GfK's latest UK boxed sales charts are in, and hey, guess what: The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom continues to reign supreme. Nintendo's latest open-world adventure has once again claimed the top spot, so a heck of a lot of people have obviously been diligently buying their copies from Beedle at stables.

In the days after its release, Tears of the Kingdom shot to the number one spot in the UK boxed charts, racking up 10 million sales in just three days. It's jostled for position with the likes of Final Fantasy XVI, but in the week ending July 8th, Zelda was yet again at number one in GfK's chart.

Second place this week goes to FIFA 23, which was at number six the week before; there's always plenty of life in EA's football (or "soccer") efforts. Number three is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, no doubt bolstered by news that the Booster Course Pass Wave 5 DLC is on its way very soon.

Fellas, fellas, can't we all just get along?

The aforementioned Final Fantasy XVI finds itself in fourth place this week, constituting a drop of two places. Fifth place goes to the perennially popular and incredibly successful Hogwarts Legacy, while sixth place is occupied by Sony's God of War Ragnarok, which was in fourth place last week.

In seventh, it's Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which hasn't let serious technical issues (at least at launch) on PC and consoles hold it back from a pretty strong performance in terms of sales. Eighth place goes to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which, it seems, won't leave the charts until its inevitable successor is released, presumably later this year.

Finally, ninth place goes to Blizzard's Diablo 4, for which a pretty robust (if somewhat confusing) upcoming content roadmap appears to be in place. Tenth place goes to Minecraft, another game which, alongside Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, will seemingly never leave the charts.

That's all for this week's UK boxed sales charts! Don't forget to join us next week, when we will inevitably toast Zelda's success once again.
