Also, Kirby breaks sales record
EA’s updated racer Burnout Paradise Remastered has slammed straight into number one of the UK Charts, some 10 years after Burnout Paradise’ original release. Nintendo’s Kirby Star Allies also had an excellent debut, landing the number two slot. In fact, Kirby Star Allies is the fastest-selling (boxed) Kirby release of all-time!
Both Electronic Arts and Nintendo are dominating the Top Ten, with even the seemingly-peaked UFC 3 making a comeback at number eight, while FIFA 18 maintains its placing in the upper echelon. Nintendo currently hold four Top Ten positions, with Kirby joined by fellow poster pals Mario and Zelda.
In other chart news, Bethesda’s Fallout 4 is making brave strides to join Grand Theft Auto V as a game that simply refuses to stop selling, having re-entered the Top Ten once again. Capcom’s Devil May Cry HD Collection debuted at thirteen, while last week’s number three – the abominable Bravo Team – has dropped all the way down to number thirty.
