Devil May Cry 5 Has a Stylish Debut Leaping to the Top of the UK Sales Chart

Capcom indeed looks to be back as Devil May Cry 5 debuts atop the UK sales chart.

In its first week of availability, Capcom’s Devil May Cry 5 has unsurprisingly immediately found its way to the top of the weekly UK sales chart for video games.

Devil May Cry 5 beat out the rest of the pack in a week that was sparse with new releases. It seems that Capcom’s return to the DMC franchise has paid early dividends, but it’ll be interesting to see how it performs in the long term.

Meanwhile on this week’s chart, Anthem dropped down to fourth after coming in at first over the past two weeksRed Dead Redemption 2 again found its way into the top five, this week coming in at second while Mario Kart 8 Deluxe made a resurgence and jumped all the way back into third this week. FIFA 19 then rounded out this week’s top five.

As for other new releases last week, Square Enix’s Left Alive had a dismal debut and barely cracked the top 40 coming in at 39th overall. Clearly, word of the game’s poor quality spread quickly. Also worth mentioning is that of Dead or Alive 6, which is nowhere to be found in the top 40 merely in its second week on the market.

To check out the full top 40 for last week, you can find the list below.
