Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins has won the battle with Super Mario Odyssey for the UK top spot in the latest weekly chart standings.
According to the GFK Chart-Track stats, Assassin’s Creed Origins sales are almost level with predecessor Syndicate which also claimed the No.1 spot following its release in 2015. However, Origins revenue is somewhat higher thanks to more expensive special editions of the game.
Despite being forced to settle for the No.2 spot in its debut week, Super Mario Odyssey becomes the biggest launch title for Nintendo Switch in the UK, comfortably besting the week one sales of The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild and every Wii U title. As a result, Super Mario Odyssey becomes the sixth biggest launch in Nintendo’s history and continues the great start made by Nintendo Switch following its launch in March of this year.
Elsewhere, Machine Games’ Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus debuts at No.4 this week with PS4 exclusive Gran Turismo Sport shifting down a place to No.5. Destiny 2 sales are up on the back of a PC release as it remains at No.7. The final new entry in the charts this week, Just Dance 2018 enters at No.23, with the Wii still the prominent series sales console despite an outing on Nintendo Switch.
As always, it’s worth mentioning that the chart only accounts for physical unit sales, and does not include digital sales.
