Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age gives Square-Enix their first no.1 of 2017

PS4 exclusive Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is the UK’s new number one, ergo Square-Enix’s first chart topper since 2016’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

This ends Crash Bandicoot’s two-week run – the box breaking marsupial is now at #3, with Activision’s own Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare rising from #8 to #2.

This resurgence can be pinned on Amazon Prime Day, as half-a-dozen other games also temporarily reduced on Amazon have shot back up the chart.

Forza Horizon 3 is up from #14 to #6, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition rises from #22 to #7, and WipEout: Omega Collection is back in the top ten at #8, up all the way from #28.

To make room for all these re-entries, Micro Machines World Series, FIFA 17, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Battlefield 1 and Rocket League all depart the top ten. Now that’s a shake-up.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age was the only new entry in the top 40, meaning Cars 3: Driven to Win didn’t get a look in.

The best the movie tie-in could manage was #5 in the Switch chart.
