Five new releases enter UK top 40

Considering the usually quiet season of summer is upon us, it’s somewhat surprising to find that five new releases have made the UK top 40 this week.

Before we rattle them off, let’s cover the top five. For a second week running DOOM takes the top spot, followed by the recently discounted FIFA 16 at #2.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End holds onto #3, Overwatch drops to #4 and then at #5 it’s good old GTA V.

At #6 it’s the highest new arrival – the physical release of the indie smash Rocket League.

The next new entry is the Wii U exclusive Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE at #18.

Then at #23 it’s the ravishing remaster Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir, the PS Vita iteration of which takes #1 in the PS Vita chart.

At #30 we find Mario & Sonic: Rio 2016 Olympic Games, shortly followed by the allegedly terrible Dino Dini’s Kick Off Revival at #37.

Mighty No. 9 didn’t get a top 40 look in at all, breaking only the Wii U chart at #7.
