To no one’s surprise, Final Fantasy 7 Remake topped the UK charts for boxed video game sales in the week ending April 11, as we reported yesterday (via GamesIndustry). The game sold half as many physical copies as Final Fantasy 15 when it launched in December 2016, though not only is that down to most physical stores in the UK being closed due to a government-ordered lockdown, it’s also worth noting that Final Fantasy 15 launched during the Christmas period.

Physical sales in the UK on the whole, however, seem to be on the up. Over a million copies of games have been sold in the UK since the lockdown began, while if you include the week before that, the number goes up to 1.5 million, with Animal Crossing: New Horizons having had a big hand in that. Year-on-year physical sales are up 3 per cent, while sales this week are up 2 per cent over last week.

Resident Evil 3which debuted in second place last week, has fallen down to No. 7, seeing a 78 per cent drop in sales. Meanwhile, curiously enough, The Last of Us Remastered re-entered the top 10. You can check out the full top 10 below.
