Crash Bandicoot claims fourth UK No.1

Crash Bandicoot continued to outsell Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 last week, claiming its fourth No.1 in the UK weekly charts. Sales decreased 28 per cent week-on-week, but that was still enough to see off the competition from Nintendo’s Switch exclusive.

Splatoon 2, meanwhile, remained at No.2 last week, despite sales falling by 56 per cent week-on-week. It wasn’t the only Nintendo title in the Top Ten last week, however, as Nintendo’s Miitopia for 3DS debuted at No.7. Meanwhile, Hey! Pikmin, which released on the same day to celebrate the launch of Nintendo’s New 2DS XL console, entered the charts at No.29.

Bethesda had a great week as well, with Fallout 4, Doom and Dishonored 2 claiming No.4-6 respectively, with sales increasing over 100 per cent week-on-week for all three titles after a swathe of 3 for 2 deals at several retailers.

FIFA 17’s sales also rose by 42 per cent last week, but the title actually dropped a place to No.9, outdone by Alternative’s new entry Rugby League Live 4 at No.8.

Horizon Zero Dawn remains extremely popular as a console tie-in bundle, rising eight places to No.11 and sales increasing by 93 per cent week-on-week, but the biggest climber this week was EA’s Battlefield 1, which rose 24 places to No.14 after strong price promotion activity caused a 212 per cent rise in sales.

Here’s the Top Ten in full:

1. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy (Activision Blizzard)
2. Splatoon 2 (Nintendo)
3. Grand Theft Auto V (Take-Two)
4. Fallout 4 (Bethesda)
5. Doom (Bethesda)
6. Dishonored 2 (Bethesda)
7. Miitopia (Nintendo)
8. Rugby League Live 4 (Alternative)
