UK sales charts for the week ending on July 14th courtesy of UKIE and Gfk Chart-Track. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is in the top spot for the third consecutive week in a row. Considering how successful it was on PS4 in 2017, this should come as no surprise, now that it’s also available for Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. That being said, there are some pretty strong new releases this week.
LEGO The Incredibles debuts in second place this week with 46 percent of sales coming from the PS4 version. Interestingly while the Xbox One version had 30 percent of sales, the Switch saw 23 percent of sales. Then there’s Octopath Traveler, Square Enix’s Switch-exclusive RPG, which debuts in third place.
It sold almost twice as much as Bravely Default (2012) and more than double that of Bravely Second (2016), both on the Nintendo 3DS. However, thanks to its higher price tag, Octopath Traveler is actually in first when it comes to revenue for single platform games. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for the Nintendo Switch and 3DS debuted in fourth place, with the former accounting for 93 percent of sales. Despite its position, first week sales are 40 percent lower than the Wii U version.
