Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Beats Splatoon 2 to Top the UK Weekly Sales Chart for a Third Time

Activision's PS4 exclusive Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy returns to No.1 on the latest UK weekly sales chart: proving that nostalgia has some legs.

on July 24, 2017 8:28 AM

The 29th week of the UK Sales Chart is in, and after a brief two week hiatus from the No.1 spot Vicarious Vision’s Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has returned to the throne for the third total time, replacing Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age which had held the honor for the last two weeks, but has since fallen to No.7

Notably, the week’s big debut, Splatoon 2, came in at No.2 behind the Bandicoot, which apparently surged back up the charts thanks to a renewed stock (it was pretty hard to come by for a little bit). It’s worth noting that Splatoon 2 only had one day of sales accounted for, as it released on the 21st and sales for the week ended on the 22nd.

While, Splatoon 2 was bested by Crash Bandicoot, it did outperform its predecessor, becoming the 3rd biggest launch for the Switch yet, behind only juggernauts Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has now matched The Last of Us: Remastered with the most weeks at No1 for a PS4-only title with three weeks.

Elsewhere on the charts, Grand Theft Auto V came in at No.3, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe raced its way to No.4, and Overwatch rounded out the top-five at No.5.

Here’s the full Top 40 for Week 29 2017 (the week ended on July 22nd). It’s important to note this only includes physical sales, and not digital sales.
