None of last week’s new releases could topple Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, which remains the UK’s no.1 for a third consecutive week.
LEGO The Incredibles settles for #2, with the PS4 version proving the most popular (followed by Xbox One and then Switch).
At #3 it’s Square-Enix’s Octopath Traveler, which also had no trouble topping the Switch chart.
GamesIndustry.biz reports that if the UK top 40 was based on revenue alone Octopath would actually be no.1, due to the higher price point of both Crash and The Incredibles.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker took #4 meanwhile. This Wii U conversion also made #3 in the Switch chart and #4 in the 3DS chart, charting below Mario Kart 7, AC: New Leaf and Pokemon Sun.
Then at #5 it’s God of War, up one position. FIFA 18 fell two places to #6, the surprisingly popular Jurassic World Evolution dropped five places to #7, Mario Tennis Aces is at #8, Far Cry 5 takes #9, and then at #10 it’s Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
On the topic of Nintendo, precisely ¼ of the top 40 is formed of first-party Nintendo games this week. That’s pretty good going.
SEGA’s Shining Resonance Refrain was the only other new entry, making a lowly #27. Worry not – we have a feeling a certain hedgehog will climb the chart next Monday.
