Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Debuts at the Top of the Weekly UK Sales Chart

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition Debuts at the Top of the Weekly UK Sales Chart

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition proved to have a strong launch that doubled the launch sales of the original game when it released on the Wii.

Despite the lack of its full slate of releases having yet come into view, Nintendo continues to have a great 2020 so far, with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition proving to be the latest successful launch for the publisher.

Following its release last Friday, Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition ended up being the week’s best-selling title in the United Kingdom. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the fan-favorite RPG was able to double the sales of the original game when it launched back in 2011. However, it didn’t end up surpassing Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which arrived back in 2017. It’s also worth noting, per usual, that this chart only takes into account retail copies of the game.

Nintendo retained a strong presence at the top of the weekly UK chart, too, as Animal Crossing: New Horizons moved down from first to second on the week. Meanwhile, other regularly occurring entries on the UK charts such as Call of Duty: Modern WarfareGrand Theft Auto 5, and FIFA 20 ended up rounding out the top five spots this past week.

The only other mentionable this week is that, due to sales, older PlayStation 4 titles like The Last of Us: RemasteredDays Gone, and Horizon Zero Dawn were able to find their way back into the top 40 after not appearing on the chart altogether in the week prior. It’s pretty commonplace to see discounted games surge back into this list on a weekly basis, and that has again been proven true here.
