Here’s a bit of a twist: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy actually outsold new release Splatoon 2 in the UK sales charts this week – despite the former being almost a month old. Now the comparison’s not entirely fair because Activision’s remaster is cheaper and on a console with a bigger install base, but it had looked like the ‘Coot was starting his slow descent out of the best sellers list following Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age’s success last time around.
Unsurprisingly, the latter dropped all the way down into seventh position, as Fallout 4 re-entered in ninth place. There’s not a massive amount to say about the chart otherwise: Cars 3: Driven to Win debuted in a very disappointing 34th place, suggesting that movie tie-ins are bad business these days. Otherwise, you’ll find the full top ten embedded below.
