Even with the absence of Sonic Colours: Ultimate, this weekâ€™s UK chart is one of the more eventful of recent times. Finally, some new releases have arrived.
WarioWare: Get It Together takes no.1 in the all-formats top 40, replacing the evergreen Minecraft â€“ the week before last was incredibly slow for UK game sales.
Bandai-Namcoâ€™s Tales of Arise alights at #2. It managed to claim no.1 in the PS5 chart and #2 in the Xbox Series S/X chart too. JRPGs tend to exit the chart as quickly as they enter, so itâ€™ll be interesting to see where it places next Monday.
NBA 2K22 rounds off an all-new top three, putting in strong showings in all the individual format charts. Except on Switch, where itâ€™s nowhere to be seen.
The next new entry is too far behind â€“ Life is Strange: True Colours, which reviewed well with critics, is at #6. It claimed a slightly more impressive #3 in both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S charts.
Bus Simulator 21 (!) makes a surprise stop at #17, Kochâ€™s Big Rumble Boxing: Creed Champions drops in at #29, and then finally for new releases, Nintendoâ€™s Game Builder Garage is at #40.
Word has it a Switch price drop is imminent. If that comes to pass, expect a very Switch-centric chart next Monday.
