Creepy platformer Little Nightmares has managed a dream debut in the UK sales charts, entering in fourth position on the British best sellers list – despite the rundown only including retail sales. The game – which is also likely to have proved a popular pick on the PlayStation Store – did exceptionally well, outpacing a resurgent The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild among other big name games.
Of course, it obviously wasn't enough to blue shell Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, which secured Nintendo's first number one in Blighty since Pokémon White launched all the way back in 2011. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 pulled up just behind the racer, while evergreen titles like Grand Theft Auto V rounded out the remainder of the Top Ten.
As for other new releases, Outlast Trilogy spooked 14th place while Puyo Puyo Tetris slotted in to 18th position. We're definitely approaching a slow period for physical software releases, so it'll be interesting to see how the charts settle over the coming weeks, and which games dominate the slow summer months.
