Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled tops a sluggish UK Charts


Lack of releases results in meandering rankings

It's been a pretty slow summer for releases, and that hasn't helped that already floundering UK physical market one bit. Case in point, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has returned to the top of the UK Charts, recapturing the number one slot despite a 14% drop in sales.

A lack of new entries in the entire Top 40 allowed older titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2, F1 2019 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to climb several places, the latter even making it back into the Top Three. In the meantime, Fire Emblem: Three Houses has begun a decline, having spent an impressive fortnight in the number one slot, but still currently holds a Top Ten place. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy also mounted its 468th comeback, climbing from number 25 to number 13.

Elsewhere in the charts... erm... nothing happened.
