Given the global situation surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, it’s not surprising that physical sals of video games have been hurting, and that’s been exactly the case in the UK during the week ending March 14 (via GamesIndustry).

Team Ninja’s Soulslike action-RPG Nioh 2 has debuted on top of charts, but its boxed sales are 63 per cent lower than the physical sales of Nioh when it debuted in February 2017. Another major new release last week was Ori and the Will of the Wisps, which debuted in 13th place. It’s worth noting, however, that given the game’s availability on Xbox Game Pass on both PC and Xbox One, it’s likely performed significantly better on the digital front.

My Hero One’s Justice 2 was another new release last week, and it debuted in sixteenth place. Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, which topped charts on its debut last week, is now in third place, with sales falling 53 per cent. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is in an second place, and actually saw an increase in boxed sales, which rose by 108 per cent week-on-week.
