UK eShop Analysis
This week has proven interesting. Hyrule Warriors didn’t immediately hit the top of the charts like Donkey Kong did, but is steadily climbing.
Of note though, is how with Stardew Valley at the summit the other usual suspects are displaced throughout the chart, as low as 10th place for Football Manager.
Launch sales and surprise sales are what broke the chart with Death Road To Canada soaring, Timber Man Vs. and Raging Justice resting fresh out of a sale and WonderBoy returning to the charts with 50% off.
Elsewhere, Mario Kart 8 once again hits the low-end, and Yonder joins the fray, alongside Wizard of Legend.
We will see how Hyrule Warriors lasts next week, and whether it can surpass Donkey Kong, and what new indie darlings arrive. This would have been the launch of Dark Souls Remastered but…we know what happened there. Expect a quiet week! Happy Gaming!
