Top 10 UK Sales Chart: PS4’s Crash Bandicoot Trilogy Beats Switch’s Splatoon 2 Again

Crash Bandicoot’s N. Sane Trilogy has once again seen off competition from Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 to come top of the UK physical sales chart this week. The PS4 exclusive sealed a fourth week out of five at No.1 since launch, meaning the Switch shooter has to settle for No.2 for the week ending July 29.

Below these, Grand Theft Auto V clutches the final podium position in No.3, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. It was revealed last week that Rockstar’s open-world epic is the best-selling physical game in the UK so far this year.

Elsewhere, Bethesda enjoys a resurgence this week with Fallout 4, Doom, and Dishonored 2 taking No.4, No.5, and No.6, respectively. Finally, the week’s three new releases enjoy mixed performances: Nintendo’s Miitopia and Big Ant’s Rugby League Live 4 finish at No.7 and No.8, respectively, but Nintendo’s other new game, Hey! Pikmin, is all the way down at No.29 in its debut week.

The platformer-strategy title received a lukewarm reception upon its release last week, including a 6/10 in our Hey! Pikmin review. Miitopia, meanwhile, fared worse:

“Lack of player input and randomness makes Miitopia feel like a slow slog you mostly watch rather than play,” wrote our critic, Heidi Kemps. “It’s certainly cute, and it boasts the typically high production values you expect from Nintendo in terms of visuals, music, and dialogue. However, the fun of seeing Miis you put in various roles do goofy things wears thin after just a few hours, and while the game can reignite a bit of that initial joy when you add new Miis to the game at certain milestones, you still have to trudge through a lot of repetition to get there. If you’re looking for a deep, engrossing game filled with Miis of your making, I’m sorry to say that adventure is in another castle.” Read more in our full Miitopia review.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
