It sounds like Dragon's Dogma 2 and Rise of the Ronin — both released on Friday of last week — have struggled to make an immediate impact in the UK. While we don't have the full sales charts just yet, GamesIndustry.biz's ever-knowledgeable Christopher Dring has outlined the relative success of the new releases, and it's fair to say that neither game has done well. At least, not at retail.

The latest weekly charts are topped by EA Sports FC 24, with Dragon's Dogma 2 in second place. However, according to Dring, Capcom's action RPG only "narrowly" outpaced Princess Peach Showtime in third, which itself "had a weak launch".

Meanwhile, Rise of the Ronin entered even further down in fifth, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Another new release, Alone in the Dark, ended up in sixth.

But as Dring says, we really need to examine digital sales data before claiming that any of these titles have been commercial flops. As of right now, though, it looks like Dragon's Dogma 2 and Rise of the Ronin haven't been able to connect on a mainstream level. Maybe that's not much of a surprise, but it'll be interesting to see how the games perform elsewhere.

Do you think it was a mistake launching both titles on the same day? Or is there simply not enough hype to go around? Await the full charts in the comments section below.
