Several games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey see sales increases.
Due to the lack of major releases, Ubisoft Massive’s The Division 2 stayed on top of the UK retail sales charts ending April 13th, as per Gfk Chart-Track and UKIE. Interestingly, it’s seen an 8 percent increase in sales over the previous week, as per GamesIndustry. FIFA 19 and Red Dead Redemption 2 managed the second and third place spots for the week.
FIFA 19 saw a 25 percent decrease in sales week-over-week, but Red Dead Redemption 2 saw an increase of 14 percent, similar to the previous week. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which stayed at fourth place, saw a 6 percent sales increase. Perhaps the greatest rise in sales was Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It’s currently in sixth place with a 62 percent sales increase, thanks to Easter deals.
Titles like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Yoshi’s Crafted World, both of which managed to unseat The Division 2 for number one spots in previous weeks, have seen further drops than in the past week. While FromSoftware’s action adventure is in seventh place, Nintendo’s playful platformer dropped to fifth place. The latter’s sales also dropped by 18 percent.
