Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was released for the Nintendo Switch on July 29th and has garnered a strong amount of critical acclaim. Its sales have been pretty good as well with Gfk (via GamesIndustry) confirming it to be the biggest UK launch for the series to date. The Gfk physical sales for the week ending July 30th are now available and unsurprisingly, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is on top.
The previous chart-topper, Horizon Forbidden West, dropped to second place. Guerrilla Games’ open-world title has topped the charts several times in the past few months, thanks to the new PS5 bundle. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga holds steady at third while Nintendo Switch Sports drops to fourth from second place. F1 22 also dropped from fifth to sixth place.
The other new debuts for the week were Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge in eighth (with Merge Games publishing the physical version) and Bandai Namco’s Digimon Survive in 10th. Check out the full top ten for the week below.
