Hogwarts Legacy, the upcoming action role-playing video game set in the Harry Potter universe, has debuted in the top spot of the latest UK gaming charts, knocking Star Wars Jedi: Survivor down to second place.
A Quiet Week for Nintendo
Despite Nintendo’s dominance in recent gaming charts, this week has been quieter for the company, with only two of their titles, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Mario Odyssey, making it into the top 10. However, a number of Switch titles, including Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Pokmon Violet, have landed in the teens. Mojang’s Minecraft Legends continues to sell well on the console, with 78% of purchases coming from the Switch. Meanwhile, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp has dropped to 31st place after making a strong debut in its opening week.
Dead Island 2 Takes Third Place
Dead Island 2, the sequel to the popular zombie action role-playing game, has nabbed a podium spot in third place in the latest UK gaming charts. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V continues to perform well, holding onto the eighth spot in the charts. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Minecraft Legends also remain in the top 10, taking the ninth and tenth spots respectively.
The Top 20
The top 20 of the latest UK gaming charts features a mix of genres and franchises. Alongside the aforementioned games, titles such as Resident Evil 4, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and God of War Ragnarok have all made appearances. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Splatoon 3 have also made their way into the top 30.
The Lower Ranks
Outside of the top 20, there have been a few notable movements in the latest UK gaming charts. Kirby and the Forgotten Land has jumped up to 23rd place, while Mario Party Superstars has slipped to 18th. Pokmon Legends: Arceus has dropped down to 28th place, and Metroid Prime Remastered has fallen out of the top 30 entirely.
The latest UK gaming charts provide a glimpse into the current state of the gaming industry, with a mix of new and familiar titles making appearances. It will be interesting to see if Hogwarts Legacy can maintain its position in the coming weeks, or if another title will manage to take the top spot.
