Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice takes top spot in the UK all format physical sales chart in its debut week. Sales monitor Chart-Track says the top of the chart was “close” this week, as From Software’s new game forces last week’s No.1, The Division 2, down to No.2 for the week ending March 23.
Elsewhere the chart is full of familiar faces. FIFA 19 finishes at No.3, while Rockstar’s huge open-world games Grand Theft Auto V (No.4) and Red Dead Redemption 2 (No.5) round out the top five. Battlefield V re-enters the top 40 at No.18, likely boosted by the impending launch of its battle royale mode, Firestorm. Aside from Sekiro, no brand-new titles enter the chart this week.
Sekiro has also enjoyed a strong critical reception, including a 9/10 in GameSpot’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice review-in-progress. “Sekiro marries From Software’s unique brand of gameplay with stealth action to deliver an experience that is as challenging as it is gratifying,” wrote Tamoor Hussain.
