For the third week in a row Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has held the top spot in the UK physical sales chart. This week the game was up against some stiff competition from the likes of a new LEGO title and a highly-anticipated Switch release, Octopath Traveler.
Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy has held the top spot in the UK physical sales chart since it saw a release for PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The Xbox One version is outperforming the other versions in the UK, but the Switch version is strongest in the EMEA.
LEGO The Incredibles released last week and made it to second place, not quite selling enough to beat Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. The game hasn’t seen the biggest launch of a LEGO game but that’s because it’s quite specific license, particularly compared to the likes of Star Wars and Marvel Super Heroes. The game has performed worse than LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, which launched last year, but better than LEGO Ninjago: The Movie. 23 percent of sales were for Nintendo Switch, with 30 percent on Xbox One, and 46 percent on Playstation 4.
LEGO The Incredibles just narrowly beat Octopath Traveler, the new RPG from Square Enix for Nintendo Switch. Sales are actually double that of the developer’s last title, Bravely Default, and considering it’s a Nintendo Switch exclusive it’s even more impressive that it’s sold so well. In fact the game even sold better than Bravely Second, a highly anticipated sequel to the cult classic that Bravely Default became.
In terms of revenue Octopath Traveler would actually be at the top of the chart due to its higher price tag.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker has re-entered the chart in fourth place after the release of the remake for Nintendo Switch and 3DS. The new version of the game comes with reworked challenges and new puzzles for players to complete since the original on Wii U. 93 percent of sales came from Nintendo Switch sales and 7 percent were from the 3DS version. The game actually sold 40 percent less copies than the Wii U version did at launch, but this could have something to do with it launching on the same day as another big Switch exclusive.
