Niche titles tend to sell out once word of mouth spreads, and consequently vanish from the chart the following week. This isn’t the case for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, which remains at no.1 for a second time running. Nintendo clearly didn’t underestimate demand.
At #2 it’s a game anything but niche – FIFA 19. As we’ve mentioned already, most (if not all) supermarket chains have slashed the price to a tenner in the run-up to FIFA 20.
Super Mario Maker 2 and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled hold onto #3 and #4 (respectively).
Madden NFL 20 enters at a respectable #5, further proving the popularity of American football is on the rise in the UK.
GTA V is at #6, followed by fellow top ten regular Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at #7.
After debuting at #2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood drops to #8. It may even drop out the top ten entirely next week – a price cut this soon seems unlikely.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate takes #9, while good old Minecraft (the Switch version, from the looks of it) sees us out at #10.
F1 2019, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 all depart the top ten, meanwhile.
As for re-entries, Kingdom Hearts III and The Sims 4 re-surface at #30 and #31, presumably due to price cuts.
