UK Charts 05/05/18 – God of War Beats Donkey Kong

Kratos stands undefeated at the head of the UK retail charts, holding off Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Nintendo Switch to retain the top spot. This is despite a 56% drop in sales week-on-week, and GamesIndustry (who have the actual sales figures) describe the gap as “comfortable”.

That said, Tropical Freeze is still a good outing for Nintendo. The port/remaster of the Wii U game sold 53.7% more copies in its first week on Switch than it did on Wii U, and now accounts for 17% of the game’s physical sales in total.

Less good for Nintendo is the drop off in Labo sales, with the Variety Kit falling from 3rd to 13th and the Robot Kit dropping out of the top forty.

One other surprise is that GTA V is no longer in the top 10, as it now sits in 12th. Could this be the start of a slide down the charts for the seemingly perennial game?

Here’s the top 10 from the charts:

LW TW Title
1 1 God of War
New 2 Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
2 3 Far Cry 5
4 4 FIFA 18
5 5 Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
12 6 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2
6 7 Fallout 4
9 8 PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
11 9 Star Wars Battlefront II
9 10 Super Mario Odyssey

  1. GTAV has slipped out to 12th before… it will be back as soon as the promotions on Fallout and Battlefront end.
