Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Beats Out Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 on Weekly UK Sales Chart

An Amazon Prime Day discount allowed Crash Bandicoot to top Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 in the UK last week.

Even though early indications of Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order’s sales seemed to tell us that the game was performing quite well, it still didn’t do enough in its first week of availability in the UK to top Crash Bandicoot.

In this past week’s UK sales chart for video game software, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was the week’s biggest winner and came out ahead of the rest of the pack. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 ended up debuting right behind Crash in the second-place spot. While this might seem disappointing for MUA3, this order actually makes a bit of sense. CTR has the advantage of being on multiple platforms while Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is exclusive for Switch.

Plus, as history has shown us, those folks in the UK really love them some Crash Bandicoot as both Nitro-Fueled and the N. Sane Trilogy have dominated the UK charts over the past few years. Ukie also mentions that CTR being discounted for Amazon Prime Day was also a big boost for the title.

As for the rest of the list this week, it’s more of the same for the most part. Super Mario Maker 2FIFA 19, and Red Dead Redemption 2 rounded out the top five entries on the week. Meanwhile, the rest of the chart has many more titles moving around than before because of the aforementioned sales with Prime Day.

Per usual, the full top-40 list from last week in the UK can be examined below.
