The Resident Evil 2 remake takes No.1 in this week’s UK video games chart.

According to new data from chart tracking company, GfK, Capcom’s well-received remake of Resident Evil 2 is the biggest video game launch of the year so far, and enters the All Formats Chart at No.1.

The chart – which tracks the sales of physical software in the UK – also sees Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 climb two places to No.2, and Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 move up one position to No.3. This means that Nintendo Switch exclusive, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxewhich held No.1 for the past two weeks – falls to No.4.

The rest of the Top Ten sees a slight shuffle of the pack, with Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown showing some pleasing staying power.

Further down the chart, Fallout 76 continues to hold steady at No.24, and Just Cause 4 re-enters the Top 40 at No.22, bolstered by some recent price cuts.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
