UK Charts 18/07/16: Lego Star Wars Holds Onto The Top Spot

The force is still pretty strong with this one.

You can’t say that the Lego games aren’t popular, and as Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens enjoys its third week at the top, it’s difficult to see who can topple the game from its perch. They always seem to land at just the right moment, borrowing on film licenses and, especially during the slower summer months, then get to rule the charts for weeks on end.

Aside from that, it’s quite a strange week. Monster Hunter Generations enters the charts in 3rd spot as the sole new release to enter the top 20, but everything else is jumping all over the place. Major sales and console bundles last week seem to have propelled Uncharted 4, Zoo Tycon, Kinect Sports: Rivals, Guitar Hero Live and Batman: Arkham Knight back up the list.

We’ll have to see if they can cling on in the top 20 next week.
