UK chart top spot taken by Tekken

Bandai-Namco must be pleased as punch. Tekken 7 has become the first in the series to shoot straight to no.1 since 1998’s Tekken 3.

For those curious about entries prior, 2012’s Tekken Tag Tournament 2 had to settle for #2, while 2006’s Tekken 6 debuted at #8.

Tekken 7’s arrival knocked Injustice 2 down to #3, with Overwatch remaining at #2 thanks to price cuts.

GTA V and FIFA 17 dropped a place each, falling to #4 and #5 respectively.

At #6 it’s Bethesda’s Prey. Ghost Recon: Wildlands held onto #7, while Horizon: Zero Dawn and Rocket League re-entered the top ten at #8 and #9.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sees us out at #10.

Dishonored 2, Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Ultra Street Fighter II all departed the top ten meanwhile, with Street Fighter II falling all the way from #10 to #34. Ouch.

As for other new entries, Ubisoft’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew boldly arrived at #16 while MXGP 3: The Official Motocross Videogame made #22.
