‘Destiny 2’ takes a third successive week at No1 and means that Activsion have taken 11 No1’s so far this year, split over 3 different games (Call of Duty IW/Crash Bandicoot N.Sane and Destiny 2).
As with last week, a further 6 new releases grace the charts: Debuting at No2 is Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios ‘Project Cars 2’ – the original game debuted at No1 back in week 19, 2015 and had a very successful week 1, with 35% of lifetime sales units generated in that week. Last week’s big new entries both shuffle down 1 place with 2K/Take 2’s ‘NBA 2K18’ down one place to No3 and Konami’s ‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2018’ dropping one place to No4. Debuting at No5 is Nintendo’s ‘Pokken Tournament DX’ for Switch and debuting at No12 is Capcom’s ‘Marvel vs Capcom Infinite’. Nintendo’s re-releases of ‘Pokemon Gold Version’ (No18) and ‘Pokemon Silver Version’ (No21) take us back to 2001 when these 2 games were first released on Gameboy Colour – these 2 titles remain the 4th and the 6th all-time best sellers of all Pokemon games in the UK (the Top 3 are also Gameboy Colour releases: Pokemon Yellow/Red/Blue). The final new release this week is Telltale Games’ ‘Minecraft Story Mode Season 2’ debuting at No25.
