Finally, some fresh blood. The UK top ten sees two new arrivals this week, both published by Deep Silver. Open water shark RPG Maneater swam in at #6, while the surprisingly slick Saints Row The Third: Remastered took #7.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons remained no.1, this week followed by another Switch exclusive – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe climbed three places to take #2.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare also remained at #3. GTA V and FIFA 20 on the other hand both dipped a few positions, falling to #4 and #5.
At #8 it’s Minecraft on Switch, up from #11. Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order fell from #6 to #9, while Luigi’s Mansion 3 went from #7 to #10.
This ushers Just Dance 2020 out the top ten, now at #11.
God of War was the week’s highest riser – going from #16 to #31 – while Pokémon Shield was the biggest faller, plummeting from #13 to #40. Final Fantasy VII Remake had a rough week too – the ravishing JRPG fell from #15 to #26.
This week sees the release of three major Switch releases – BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands Legendary Collection and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. It’ll be interesting to see if any are able to top the chart next Monday.
