The latest UK charts courtesy of Chart-Track are finally out and in a surprising twist, neither FIFA 18, Grand Theft Auto 5 nor Call of Duty: WW2 occupy the top spot. Instead, as of March 17th, the clear winner is Burnout Paradise Remastered, a revamped version of Criterion’s previous gen racer. Given that it released on March 16th for PS4 and Xbox One, that’s pretty impressive.
Kirby Star Allies for the Nintendo Switch also debuted strong in second place despite above average reviews from critics. FIFA 18 actually rose from fourth to third place while Grand Theft Auto 5 dropped to fourth. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is in fifth place followed by Super Mario Odyssey in sixth and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds in seventh place.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild continues to hang on at tenth place but surprisingly enough, EA Sports UFC 3 and Fallout 4 have re-entered the top ten charts. The former is now in eighth, up from 14th place, while the latter is in ninth, up from 13th place.
