Supergiant Games' acclaimed Hades made its UK charts debut at No.7, thanks to the release of a physical edition on Switch.

The game has already been available digitally for Nintendo's console, as well as PC and Mac, since September, and was one of the highest rated games of last year.

Hades is the only new entry in the Top 40 this week and, despite being a single-format release of a six-month-old title, achieved a Top 10 position after just two days.

Meanwhile, Animal Crossing returns to No.1 despite a 7% drop in sales week-on-week. It's the first time the Nintendo title has claimed the top spot since the start of February, after which it was dethroned by Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury.

A 19% drop in sales didn't prevent Mario holding onto No.2, which means last week's No.1 -- Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales -- has to settle for No.3. The superhero outing's sales were down 60% week-on-week.

The only other notable move in the Top 10 is the return of Minecraft Dungeons, up from No.16 to No.10 after a 19% sales boost.

1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
2. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury
3. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales
4. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
5. Grand Theft Auto V
6. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
7. Hades
8. Minecraft (Switch)
9. Super Mario 3D All-Stars
10. Minecraft Dungeons

Spider-Man Miles Morales must have been so profitable for Sony! A game they made with a secondary, smaller team in less than 18 months couldn't have cost much. It has already sold, what, 5 or 6+ million copies by now? Amazing.

And Nintendo's reign continues. No indication of slowing down.

Glad to see Hades doing well. Fantastic game. Great fit for Switch.
Indeed. What a pleasant surprise it was. I played and finished it on my PC, and I can't wait to play it again (and platinum it) if it ever comes on PS5. Would be so cool with DualSense.
