Better late than never
Later than usual this week, but thanks for stopping by to check out the latest happenings in the UK Charts. 2018 continues to push forward, as some of last year’s big titles start to peak, making way for new (and new-to-this-generation) video games.
Deep Silver’s Kingdom Come: Deliverance debuted very strongly, landing straight in at the number two spot, it was just edged out of the top place by Electronic Arts’ FIFA 18, which is refusing to go away. Speaking of, Grand Theft Auto V has also decided it wants back in the Top Three. Again.
The Switch re-release of sexy hack ‘n’ slasher Bayonetta 2 performed superbly, debuting at number five. This pushes Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII out of the Top Five for the first time since the game’s release last November.
Elsewhere in the charts, Dynasty Warriors 9 entered just outside the Top Ten at number 13. Square’s RPG remake Secret of Mana debuted at number 24, while Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball FighterZ has peaked hard, down from number 19 to number 40.
