Many gamers went down to Paradise City last week – EA’s Burnout Paradise Remastered is the UK’s new number one.

The last Burnout to take the top spot was, coincidentally, Burnout Paradise in 2008.

Sales were apparently split 78% PS4/22% on Xbox One. EA Access and the fact that the original is Xbox One BC probably played part in that.

Burnout Paradise Remastered didn’t manage to beat Burnout 3: Takedown’s week one sales, though. We wonder if a brand-new Burnout could manage it.

Kirby Star Allies is off to a good start, too. It’s the highest-charting Kirby game ever, beating previous (joint) record holders Kirby Triple Deluxe and Kirby: Planet Robobot, both of which debuted at #15.

Capcom’s Devil May Cry HD Collection took #13, while Maximum Games’ Beast Quest arrived at #35. Considering both Scribblenauts Showdown and Gravel recently failed to make the top 40, Beast Quest’s arrival comes as a surprise.

Going back to the top ten, FIFA 18 is at #3, GTA V – last week’s chart-topper – falls to #4 while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe shifts one position to take #5.

Super Mario Odyssey also moved up one position, taking #6. PUBG sits at #7, EA Sports UFC 3 re-enters top ten at #8 – up from #14 – as does good old Fallout 4 at #9.

Zelda: BotW remains at #10 for the second week running.

As for last week’s new arrivals, the terrible Bravo Team drops from #3 all the way to #30, while after debuting at #2 TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge is now nowhere to be seen.
