The first breakdown of physical sales in the UK for 2024 is here, with Hogwarts Legacy taking the top spot just ahead of Super Mario Bros. Wonder in the final week of 2023. According to GfK (thanks, GamesIndustry), the former is also the biggest boxed game of 2023, supplanting EA’s footballing juggernaut for the first time in a decade.

You might remember that in our last UK Charts breakdown we mentioned Mario Wonder missed out on the Christmas number one. That’s still technically true, but according to new GfK data, it was actually the highest-selling game on a single platform; EA Sports FC 24 beat it simply thanks to combined sales across multiple consoles. So, you could say Mario Wonder was Christmas number one and be correct… sort of.

Back to Week 52, EA Sports FC 24 itself falls down the charts by five places this week after a 76% sales drop. Meanwhile, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rose to the fourth spot despite a 44% sales drop, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III also rose to the third spot with a 66% sales drop. All in all, then, it was a rather quiet week to close out 2023.

Here’s your look at this week’s top 40 in full, with platform splits for Switch games that also appear elsewhere:
