Ghost of Tsushima retains the top spot of the UK Charts


Tom Nook still shifting homes

Sucker Punch's mega-selling PS4 release Ghost of Tsushima has successfully retained the number one spot of the UK Charts. The open-world samurai epic has already broken global release records, selling 2.4 million copies worldwide in just the first three days of release, thereby becoming the PS4's fastest-selling, first-party, original IP.

The other major release of this past fortnight - Nintendo's Paper Mario: The Origami King - currently resides at number four, having slipped two places from its launch week standing. Speaking of Nintendo, both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Ring Fit Adventure saw a sales resurgence, allowing the two Switch titles to climb to number two and number 10 respectively.

With very little on the horizon in terms of big-budget, mainstream releases, the UK Chart is likely to stagnate a little throughout August, with consistent sellers simply jockeying for position until September brings about the dawn of the lucrative Holiday market.
