It seems Capcom has another s-s-smash hit on their hands – Devil May Cry 5 has topped the UK chart, dethroning Anthem in the process.
For reasons unknown, Chart-Track has provided a handful of physical sales figures this week – information usually kept hush-hush. Sales of DMC5 totalled 20,872, outperforming Red Dead Redemption 2 â€“ at #2 with 5,980 physical sales â€“ by some margin.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe had a substantial sales boost, rising from #8 to #3. Then at #4 we find EAâ€™s loot shooter Anthem, boasting 4,974 sales.
FIFA 19 fell from #2 to #5. Far Cry New Dawn dropped three places too, now at #6. Continuing this theme, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame went from #4 to #7 during its second week on sale.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate rose to #8, Metro Exodus prepares to depart to the top ten at #9, while the evergreen GTA V sees us out at #10.
Dirt Rally 2.0 and Trials Fusion: Gold Edition both had rough second weeks â€“ Codemasterâ€™s racer went from #6 to #21, while Ubisoftâ€™s racing/physics/party game tumbled from #10 to #27.
Square-Enixâ€™s universally panned Left Alive â€“ which currently has a dismal 40% Metacritic â€“ was the only other new release, scraping in at #39 and selling just 947 copies. We guess this means a new release only has to shift around 1000 copies during this time of year to break the top 40.
Also of note is Kirbyâ€™s Extra Epic Yarn on 3DS failing to make the top 40. The Wii re-release managed to top the 3DS chart, at least.
