Team Sonic Racing Speeds Past the Competition to Grab the Top Position on Weekly UK Sales Chart

Sonic and friends debuted at number one on the UK video game chart for the first time since 2008.

Even though many fans seemed to be disappointed with Sonic’s look in his upcoming feature-length film, it seems that hasn’t dissuaded them from picking up The Blue Blur’s latest game.

In its debut week, Team Sonic Racing snagged the top spot of the weekly UK sales chart. Sonic surpassed last week’s winner, Rage 2, and in the process, snagged its first number one overall spot for a Sonic title since the release of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games back in 2008.

As for the other entries on this week’s list, it features more of what we’ve come to expect. Sony’s Days Gone held strong this past week and continues to sit at number two overall while FIFA 19 also held firm at third. Rage 2 then dropped into fourth while Red Dead Redemption 2 once again rounded out the top five.

In the realm of additional new releases, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered came to Switch which propelled it to 15th overall. Meanwhile, Everybody’s Golf VR also landed on PSVR headsets and ended up slotting in at 22nd.
