Yoshi finally cracks the UK chart

The beginning of a new week brings us a new UK top 40. There’s a new no.1, too. This time it’s Nintendo’s turn with Yoshi’s Crafted World on Switch. Believe it or not, it’s the first ever title starring the loveable green dinosaur to claim no.1.

Yoshi’s Crafted World isn’t a runaway success, however. GI.biz reports it only managed to sell 63 more units than The Division 2, which holds onto #2.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – last week’s chart-topper – fell to #3. It managed to remain at no.1 in the PS4 chart for a second week, though.

Most of last week’s new retail releases managed to break the top 40. Assassin’s Creed III Remastered snuck in at #9, the THQ Nordic-published Generation Zero took #19, The Walking Dead: The Final Season claimed #23 while Deep Silver’s Outward followed behind at #24.

Outward’s arrival surprises us. Even now the survival RPG is yet to obtain a Metacritic score, currently reviewed by just two outlets.

Also of note is EA’s Anthem making a swift descent. The loot shooter is down fifteen places this week, dropping to #30. We sense an imminent price drop.
