The Division 2 topples Yoshi to return to the top of the UK video games chart.

Ubisoft’s online looter shooter, The Division 2, has returned to the summit of the UK video games chart after a one week absence. The chart, which is run via GfK and Ukie, tracks sales of boxed software at retail in the UK.

Last week’s No.1, Yoshi’s Crafted World, falls two places to No.3. This slip aside, it’s a good week for Nintendo with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe climbing one place to No.4, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe returning to the Top Ten at No.9, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, back in at No.10.


Further down the chart there’s a new entry for Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission at No. 26. Assassin’s Creed III Remastered, which entered the chart at No.9 last week, falls all the way to No.28.

At No.31, there’s a return for the Sega Mega Drive Classics collection, most likely due to last week’s unveiling of the Sega Mega Drive Mini.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
