Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Ball FighterZ smash the UK Charts


New releases slam into the top spots

As predicted, this week sees a shake-up in the UK Charts, with some long-termers dropping out of the Top Ten to make way for some of the biggest new releases of 2018 so far.

Both Capcom's Monster Hunter: World and Bandai Namco's Dragon Ball FighterZ saw great success, debuting at numbers one and two respectively. The new games leap-frogged Activision's Call of Duty: WWII and EA's FIFA 18, which have both held an impressive monopoly on the top spots since release.

This week also sees Star Wars Battlefront II and Assassin's Creed: Origins drop out of the Top Ten, while debuts are made by Rocket League's physical edition and Sony's creepy VR horror title, The Inpatient. Pokemon Crystal Version also put in a strong showing at number twelve. Further down the charts, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition appeared at number thirty, showing that the revamp of the controversial title has scored some new customers.
