Blimey, not only is NieR Replicant a great game, but it's also done pretty well for itself in the latest UK sales chart. The remastered experience from Yoko Taro forces FIFA 21 out of the top spot and claims it for its own. The rest of the top 10 is very much business as usual — Nintendo Switch exclusives dominate the run in while Grand Theft Auto V keeps on cropping up — but this must surely be great news for Square Enix and co. There's also room for the controversial Cyberpunk 2077, which rounds out the top 10 in last place.
Back to NieR Replicant and 89% of sales were made on PS4, but it sold 50% fewer copies than NieR: Automata did during its first week on the market. One other new entry for the week ending 24th April 2021 was MotoGP 21, which slotted in at 19th. It sold best on PlayStation 5, with the current-gen platform accounting for 37% of overall sales.
As we continue to highlight, these statistics are based purely on sales of physical versions, which means we don't have the full picture given how important digital sales are nowadays. Still, it's nice to see NieR Replicant topping the chart across the United Kingdom. Speaking of which, the Push Square review will be with you soon.
Here's the latest top 10 in full.
