Shadow of the Colossus Dethrones Monster Hunter: World to Take UK No.1 Spot

Shadow of the Colossus Dethrones Monster Hunter: World to Take UK No.1 Spot

Shadow of the Colossus has ended Monster Hunter: World‘s reign at No.1 in the all-format UK weekly charts.

Shadow of the Colossus first appeared almost 12 years ago when the Sony exclusive originally debuted at No.1 in the UK in 2006 on PS2 before being bundled up along with fellow PS2 classic Ico for a PS3 remastered release in 2011. Somewhat unsurprisingly, Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 enjoys a far greater first week for sales than its predecessor, with a 73% increase over the original.

Despite losing its place at the top of the UK all-format charts, last weeks No.1 Monster Hunter: World continues to perform well and remains inside the top 5 at No.3 with EA Sports UFC 3 holding station at No.2. Likewise, FIFA 18, Grand Theft Auto V retain their places at No.4 and 5 respectively while Assassin’s Creed Origins enjoys a climb of 6 places to re-enter the top 10 at No.9.

Origins isn’t the only game to enjoy a sales boost in week 6 either as various promotions see Bethesda’s horror sequel The Evil Within 2 and Blizzard’s Overwatch: Game of the Year re-enter the charts at No.10 and 13 and Square Enix’s re-release of Dragon Quest Builders on Nintendo Switch breaks into the top 40 at No.31.

As always, it’s worth noting that GFK Chart-Track only collects data from physical sales and not digital.
