Yoshi’s Crafted World Debuts at Number One on UK Charts as Sekiro Falls to Third

Nintendo's adorable new Yoshi adventure is off to a strong start in the UK.

Despite some stiff multiplatform competition, Nintendo’s latest Switch-exclusive Yoshi’s Crafted World has found itself at the top of the weekly UK sales chart in its first week of availability.

Releasing this past Friday, Yoshi’s Crafted World was able to beat out both Ubisoft’s The Division 2 and last week’s top-seller Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. The Switch itself continues to sell incredibly well and it seems like purchasers of the console are showing up to buy games for the platform in droves once they arrive.

As for the aforementioned titles, The Division 2 found itself coming in at second place on the chart this week while Sekiro dropped down into third. FIFA 19 was once again in fourth as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe surged ahead to round out this past week’s top five entries. Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, which also released last week, found itself debuting at ninth overall while Generation Zero slotted in at nineteenth.
