The charts for boxed video game sales in the UK for the week ending March 7 are in (via GamesIndustry), and Nintendo and Spike Chunsoft’s Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX – a remake of the first games in the subseries that launched for the GBA and DS in 2006 – has debuted in pole position. In comparison, Red Rescue Team (GBA) and Blue Rescue Team (DS) debuted at No. 14 and No. 34 respectively back when they released. Meanwhile, the last Mystery Dungeon title – the 3DS’ Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon – debuted at No. 9 in 2016.
Two Point Hospital, which debuted in second place last week, has fallen down to the sixth spot, seeing a 69 per cent week-on-week drop. In second place is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, followed by perennial performers Grand Theft Auto 5 and FIFA 20. Meanwhile, The Division 2 – which has been enjoying something of a resurgence of late, thanks in part to the release of its new expansion – takes the fifth spot.
