Capcom’s Monster Hunter World beats off competition from UFC 3 to retain top spot in this week’s UK games chart from GfK.

Despite a decline in boxed units sold, Monster Hunter World hangs on to the number one position in its second week on sale. It’s impressive work for the revitalised franchise which holds off EA Sports UFC 3, the first of two new releases entering the top ten.

Another of last week’s new entries, Dragon Ball FighterZ, drops four places in the chart, from two to six. Stalwarts Call of Duty: WWII, FIFA 18, and Grand Theft Auto V stay steady at positions three through five.

The other new game this week is Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, which debuts at nine. The remainder of the top ten comprises of Nintendo’s triumvirate of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and Super Mario Odyssey.

You can see the full UK software chart for the week ending February 3, 2018 at the GFK Chart Track website.

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.
