The Last of Us Part 2 Retains Top Spot In UK Charts

SpongeBob SquarePants and a much older release also enjoy impressive performances.

the last of us part 2

Last week, The Last of Us Part 2 debuted on top of UK charts for boxed video game sales in pole position, enjoying the biggest launch ever for any PS4 exclusive in the region. Though it has seen an 80 per cent drop in physical sales this week, it manages to hold on to its position (via GamesIndustry). Considering its sales of 4 million units worldwide in its first three days, such a drop is understandable.

What’s surprising is seeing Bravely Second: End Layer – the Square Enix RPG that launched on the 3DS all the way back in 2016 – re-enter the charts and slot right in at second place. Thanks to heavy discounts on the game at UK retailer Argos, Bravely Second sold thrice as many physical copies last week as it did at launch. It’s all-time physical sales have nearly doubled.

In third place is a new release, with THQ Nordic and Purple Lamp Studios’ remake, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. Meanwhile, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which dropped out of the top 10 for the first time last weeks, re-enters in fifth place.

You can see the full top 10 for the week ending June 27 below.
