Yooka-Laylee makes UK top ten while Persona 5 performs a vanishing act

After debuting at no.1 last week, JRPG Persona 5 is now nowhere to be seen in the UK top 40. All signs point to Deep Silver underestimating demand, and then some.


Incidentally, Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition has also left the top 40 after just one week. We doubt this is down to stock issues though; we blame the full-price mark-up.

Ubisoft’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands sneaks in to retake the top spot, making it three non-consecutive weeks for the allegedly middling open-world shooter.

LEGO Worlds, GTA V, Overwatch and FIFA 17 all rise a few positions to claim the remaining respective positions in the top five, with Overwatch up from #10 to #4.

Then at #6 it’s a new entry – Team 17’s exceedingly colourful platformer Yooka-Laylee.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is at #7, Rocket League jumps back into the top ten at #8, Zelda: Breath of the Wild falls a few positions to #9 and then at #10 it’s LEGO City Undercover.

Mass Effect Andromeda leaves the top ten meanwhile, falling from #5 to #12.

The retail release of Stardew Valley was the only other new entry in the top 40, sprouting up at #30.
