Blue and new – Sonic Mania Plus makes UK top five

We had an inkling Sonic Mania Plus would perform well in this week’s UK. Lo and behold – it’s in at #5, becoming the highest charting new release of the week.

Not that it was up against much competition, mind. The PlayStation Hits re-release of The Last of Us: Remastered made #26, while the Amazon Prime Day sale shook up the top end of the chart.

In fact, discounted Xbox One bundles were so popular during Prime Day that Sea of Thieves managed to become no.1 in the individual format chart. Minecraft: Xbox One Edition and Forza Horizon 3 are back in the top ten too, at #4 and #6.

Crash Bandicoot is the true, multi-format, no.1 for the third consecutive week. LEGO The Incredibles also held onto #2.

Skipping down the chart a bit, God of War is at #7, The Crew 2 rose to #8 thanks to a minor price cut, FIFA 18 fell to #9 while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe remains at #10.

After entering at #3 and #4 last week, Octopath Traveler and Captain Toad both take a tumble, now at #16 and #17 (respectively).
