Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Tops UK Charts!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Tops UK Charts!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door has sashayed its way to the top of the UK charts this week after its fabulous debut on May 23, 2024. It’s the talk of the town, outshining its peers with ease.

Chris Dring over at commented that this game is slaying the charts even harder than last year’s Super Mario RPG on Switch. It’s pretty much keeping up with its Paper Mario predecessor, Origami King. And yes, Paper Mario. We knew it’d make a grand entrance, but not to this extent.

This game has set a record for what you should really expect from future video game remakes.

In other magical news, Hogwarts Legacy has climbed up a notch, sending EA Sports FC 24 down a step. Those wizarding vibes are clearly still enchanting gamers everywhere. Meanwhile, our evergreen favorites—Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Bros. Wonder, and Minecraft—are all holding strong in the top ten as usual. 

And let’s not forget about LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which is still going strong, especially on Switch. Thanks to some retail discounts, it’s getting that extra oomph to stay relevant and exciting.
