Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice vertically traverses the UK chart

It was a close call between Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and The Division 2, but ultimately, Activision’s stealthy Souls-alike managed to conquer the UK chart.

It becomes FromSoftware’s second UK no.1, with the first being 2016’s Dark Souls III.

The Division 2 dropped to #2 during its second week on sale. The fact that the battle for no.1 was a close-run thing suggests sales haven’t tailed off significantly.

FIFA 19 and GTA V each dropped a position, now at #3 and #4. RDR2 fell to #5, while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe shifted to #6.

After enjoying a small boost from the belated Switch release, The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame is on the descent, resting at #7.

At #8 it’s a re-entry – the popular Xbox One pack-in Forza Horizon 4.

Despite retailer promotion, Far Cry New Dawn also travelled down the top ten, now at #9. Then at #10 for a second week running it’s New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.

Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 has left the top ten this week, diving from #6 to #13. Metro Exodus is also on a slippery slope, it seems, going from #15 to #27.
