The beginning of a new week brings us a new UK top 40. Thereâ€™s a new no.1, too. This time itâ€™s Nintendo’s turn with Yoshiâ€™s Crafted World on Switch. Believe it or not, itâ€™s the first ever title starring the loveable green dinosaur to claim no.1.
Yoshiâ€™s Crafted World isnâ€™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 â€“ last weekâ€™s chart-topper â€“ fell to #3. It managed to remain at no.1 in the PS4 chart for a second week, though.
Most of last weekâ€™s new retail releases managed to break the top 40. Assassinâ€™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 Silverâ€™s Outward followed behind at #24.
Outwardâ€™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 EAâ€™s Anthem making a swift descent. The loot shooter is down fifteen places this week, dropping to #30. We sense an imminent price drop.
