Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age pushes Crash Bandicoot off the top of UK weekly chart

Square Enix’s latest Final Fantasy remaster has gone straight in at No.1 in the UK weekly charts, finally dethroning Activision’s Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is Square Enix’s first No.1 since Deus Ex: Mankind Divided topped the UK charts last summer, and together with renewed sales from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, which rose 440 per cent last week, they pushed Crash Bandicoot down to No.3 this week, ending its two week reign at the top.

Elsewhere in the chart, a run of discounts helped Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft: Xbox Edition and Wipeout Omega Collection to push back into the Top Ten, claiming No.6-8 respectively with rises of 157 per cent, 289 per cent and 281 per cent week-on-week respectively.

Injustice 2 also rose ten places to scrape into the No.10 after a sales boost of 95 per cent week-on-week, despite remaining at full price. Indeed, with so many titles shaking up the charts this week, FIFA 17 was actually pushed out of the Top Ten, falling to No.12 after a 38 per cent drop in sales.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1-5+2.5 Remix also re-entered the charts at No.29 after sales rose by 480 per cent week-on-week, as did PlayStation VR Worlds at No.34 after a jump of 172 per cent. Otherwise, no other new release last week made it into the Top 40.

Here’s the Top Ten in full:

1. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
2. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
3. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
4. Overwatch
5. Grand Theft Auto V
6. Forza Horizon 3
7. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
8. Wipeout: Omega Collection
