What the heck is this? A Japanese role-playing game not named 'Final Fantasy' at number one? Surely not? It's true: Persona 5 has robbed the rest of the UK sales charts blind this week, climbing to the summit and securing Atlus' best ever launch in Britain by some margin. Not bad at all, eh?
The title sold 97 per cent of its copies on the PlayStation 4, with three per cent of players plumping up for the PlayStation 3 version – an interesting statistic, no? The title overcame Mass Effect: Andromeda, which fell all the way down into fifth. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands, LEGO Worlds, and Grand Theft Auto V rounded out the top five.
LEGO City Undercover entered in eighth, though almost half of its copies sold on the Nintendo Switch, perhaps demonstrating an apathy from other console owners – or a hunger for more software on the House of Mario's new handheld. The only other new entry was Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, which struggled in 23rd position.
