Kingdom Hearts III takes No.1 in the UK video game chart

Kingdom Hearts III gives the series its first UK video games chart No.1.



Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts III gives the series its first ever UK video games chart No.1.

This week’s UK video games chart from GfK sees the long-awaited Square Enix RPG, Kingdom Hearts III, debut at No.1.

It’s the best chart performance by the series so far, and knocks Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2 down one place.


There’s little change in the rest of the Top Ten. Red Dead Redemption 2, FIFA 19, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Call of Duty Black Ops 4 all play musical chairs, and Nintendo Switch platformer, Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, shows some staying power with a slight drop in its third week to No. 6.

Further down the chart there’s a new entry for Dragons: Dawn of the New Riders at No. 37. Fallout 76 drops ten places to No.34, and the Rocket League Collector’s Edition re-enters the chart at No.35.

And let’s consider poor Eevee. Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! sits at No.21, but the game’s Eevee variant is right down at No.39. Don’t worry, Eevee, we love you!

Ukie/GfK Chart-Track Top Ten – February 2 2019

  1. Kingdom Hearts 3
  2. Resident Evil 2
  3. Red Dead Redemption 2
  4. FIFA  19
  5. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
  6. New Super Mario Bros. U
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
