Crash Bandicoot Again Takes Top Spot in Weekly UK Sales, Octopath Traveler Debuts at Third

The Crash Bandicoot Trilogy once again reigns supreme in the UK with a duo of new Switch releases cracking the top five.

Once again, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has come out on top in the weekly UK sales chart for the 28th week of the year ending on July 14.

This marks Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy’s third consecutive week at the top of the charts since its release on Xbox One and Switch at the end of June. I mentioned it last week but after Crash’s high sales last year on PS4 alone, I had a feeling that it might be tough for others to slow the Bandicoot now that he’s been let loose on other platforms.

As for new arrivals on the list, LEGO The Incredibles, which didn’t release in the UK until last week, debuted at the number two spot. New Switch arrivals Octopath Traveler and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker both also had solid opening releases and slotted in at third and fourth respectively. God of War rounded out the top five this week with Jurassic World: Evolution falling from second to seventh.
