Ubisoft take a second week at No1 with ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division’ (-73%).
Right behind Ubisoft there are 2 very different kinds of fighting games debuting strongly this week. Entering the ring and debuting at No2 is ‘EA Sports UFC 2’ for PS4/Xbox One. This is the second in the series since acquisition from THQ and this version outsells EA’s first by +53% when comparing launch week sales units (‘EA Sports UFC’ debuted in week 25, 2014 for the same 2 formats). Also new and debuting at No3 is another fight title, Nintendo and Bandai Namco’s ‘Pokken Tournament’ for WiiU - the first Pokemon spin-off title to launch for WiiU.
Activision’s ‘Black Ops III’ drops 1 place to No4 (-8%) and Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry Primal’ slips from No2 to No5 (-37%). There are pre-Easter sales occurring right now which explains the movement of various titles, such as Bethesda’s ‘Fallout 4’, up 14 places to No13 (+69%) and various re-entries, such as Little Orbit’s ‘Kung Fu Panda: Legendary Legends’ at No33 (+91%) and Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2016’ at No34 (+58%).
