World Cup fever has propelled FIFA 23 back to the UK retail chart top spot, meaning Pokémon Violet is no longer no.1. With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II climbing to #2, Nintendo’s creature capturer is down to #3. Pokémon Scarlet, meanwhile, falls from #2 to #6 during its second week on sale.
Black Friday has helped several games climb. These include Sonic Frontiers dashing from #10 to #7, Zelda: Breath of the Wild surging from #39 to #11, and Metroid Dread re-entering at #20.
Just Dance 2022 also boogied on up from #27 to #18, and this was despite this year’s edition launching last week – Just Dance 2023 made its debut at #9. It also took #6 in the Switch chart, but failed to show up elsewhere.
It wasn’t the only new entry within the top 40 either – Focus’ grisly shooter Evil West rode in at #21.
Filling in the blanks in the top ten, Switch pack-in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe moved up to #4 while God of War: Ragnarök fell to #5. Nintendo Switch Sports rose to #9, and then at #10 it’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Sony’s Horizon Forbidden West left the top ten, tumbling from #7 to #17.
