If everybody is Batman, then nobody is Batman

An unprecedented amount of games have entered the UK top twenty this week. Unprecedented for this time of year, anyway. Say hello to five fresh faces.


Batman: Arkham Knight is, predictably, the UK’s new number one. It’s Warner’s 4th numero uno of 2015 following Dying Light, Mortal Kombat X and last week’s chart topper LEGO Jurassic World. That’s now at #2.

Chart-Track informs that Arkham Knight not only managed to beat Arkham City’s launch week sales, but it also “comfortably” outperformed The Witcher III – the previous fastest selling game of 2015.

The next highest new entry is Yoshi’s Woolly World at #4. Curiously, it takes that position in both the all-formats and individual format charts.

We hoped Splatoon would stick around in the top ten for another week, but alas, Nintendo’s colourful shooter has taken a tumble from #8 to #19.

Then at #10 it’s FF XIV: Heavensward. Fellow console MMO The Elder Scrolls Online is still in the top ten too, currently at #3.

Two-wheeled racer MotoGP 15 meanwhile makes its arrival at #13 with the Xbox One version proving to be the most popular.

The fifth and final new entry for the week is fighting game mash-up J-Stars Victory VS+ at #18. It was the PS4 version that came out on top. The PS3 version made #5 in the PS3 chart while the PS Vita entered at #3 in the PS Vita top 20.
