Anthem shoots straight to no.1, but couldn’t beat Resident Evil II’s launch week sales

EA’s Anthem had no trouble soaring to the UK chart top spot. reports it had a better first week than both Far Cry: New Dawn and Metro Exodus, but was unable to beat the launch week sales for Resident Evil II and Kingdom Hearts III.

As such, Capcom’s horror remake remains the fastest selling game of 2019 so far.

Speaking of Far Cry: New Dawn and Metro Exodus, the two didn’t suffer a huge drop in sales during their second week on sale. The same can’t be said for Jump Force – which fell from #4 to #17 – and Crackdown 3, which nosedived from #13 to #26.

Far Cry: New Dawn dropped just one place to #2, FIFA 19 moved up to #3 thanks to a minor price cut, RDR2 fell down to #4, and then at #5 it’s Metro Exodus.

There’s a re-entry at #6 – Forza Horizon 4, up from #15. NSMB.U and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe held onto #7 and #8, while Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 rose to #9.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sees us out the top ten boxed chart at #10.

Resident Evil II and Kingdom Hearts III both left the top ten this week meanwhile, falling to #11 and #16 (respectively).
