GSD has released its latest data for physical and digital software sales in the UK for the month of March (via GamesIndustry), and Capcom’s acclaimed remake of Resident Evil 4 has topped proceedings. In spite of having launched late in the month, it was the best-selling game of the month in the region. Sales weren’t as strong as what Resident Evil Village and 2019’s Resident Evil 2 managed, but it did outpace 2020’s RE3 remake. 65% of its sales came on PlayStation, 20% on Xbox, and 15% on PC. Capcom recently announced that the game has sold over 4 million units worldwide already.
A couple of other new releases performed well as well. WWE 2K23 was the month’s fourth best-selling game in the UK, though initial sales are still down 20% over last year’s title. Meanwhile, Metroid Prime Remastered, which launched digitally in February, saw a physical launch in March as well. With physical sales alone, it entered the monthly charts at No. 9.
Elsewhere, Hogwarts Legacy took the No. 2 spot, having already sold more than some of 2022’s best-selling games, including the likes of Elden Ring and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
On the hardware front, the PS5 was the best-selling console of the month, as well as the year’s first quarter- read more on that through here.
