Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, Injustice 2 has managed to claim the UK’s top spot.

It’s Warner Bros’ first UK number one of 2017, and the first fighting game to claim no.1 since NetherRealm’s own Mortal Kombat X in 2015.

Sony’s much touted PSVR shooter Farpoint debuts at #2, surpassing PSVR launch title PlayStation VR Worlds to become the highest charting VR title so far.

Nintendo also had a good week with Fire Emblem Echoes arriving at #5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still in the top ten too, currently at #6, while Zelda: Breath of the Wild falls two places to #12.

Well-received ‘Souls-like’ The Surge made #10. It entered #6 in the PS4 chart, but had to settle for #14 in the Xbox One chart. PS4 Pro support is clearly a huge selling point.

505 Games’ Portal Knights also managed to squeeze into the top 40, albeit at #30.
