Despite the popularity of American football being on the rise in the UK, EA’s Madden NFL 19 enters the chart one position lower than last year. Making #5 in the UK top 40 is nothing to be ashamed of, however. In fact, it was the highest charting new release of last week.
Team17’s freshly prepared Overcooked 2 entered at #8, with the PS4 version proving the most popular, followed shortly by the Switch version. The individual format chart suggests there wasn’t a huge difference in sales.
The Gearbox published We Happy Few managed to make #10. With reviews mostly being around the 6/10 mark, it’s hard to imagine it rising up the chart in the weeks to come. A slow descent is about as much as it can hope for.
Elsewhere, Crash Bandicoot claims no.1. for the umpteenth (seventh) week in a row. LEGO The Incredibles has also now remained at #2 for almost as long. GTA V rose up to #3 while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe dropped one place to #4.
The rest of the UK top ten then comprises of Call of Duty: WWII at #6, God of War at #7, and Super Mario Odyssey at #9.
Mario Tennis Aces, Jurassic World: Evolution and The Crew 2 all dropped out of the top ten meanwhile, with Ubisoft’s open-world racer falling all the way from #4 to #25.
