Beating newcomer Splatoon 2 by roughly 700 units, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy finished in 1st place in the UK last week. This gives it three #1 finishes since launch, matching The Last of Us Remastered for the most weeks at #1 for a PS4-exclusive title.

Splatoon 2 sold 59% more units in its first week than Splatoon, and now holds the third biggest Nintendo Switch launch behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Last week’s #1 title, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, saw an 85% sales drop and finished in 7th.
