UK eShop Analysis
Interesting Hyrule Warriors shot up digitally but can’t claim the top from Stardew Valley. The game is very limited at retailers such as Amazon, so this will persuade many to go digitally. Donkey Kong also begins it’s fall.
Timber Man falls fresh out of sale, and Rocket League continues to be pushed down by new releases as does Arcade Archives. Death Road to Canada fell sharply after the sale ended there too.
Speaking of sales, 60 Seconds appeared in the charts for the first time. Wizard of Legend has made a name for itself as well, climbing fast. WonderBoy also maintains a high spot after leaving a sale.
New release really dominate this week. Bloodstained and Mega Man both fill the middle of the charts, but Legacy Collection 2 is nowhere to be seen. Maybe it will appear in coming weeks?
The real story is the sale on FIFA 18 (Now being sold for a higher price I must stress!) has catapulted it once again up the charts. Yes, Runner 3 is nowhere to be seen.
Next week we will see if any indies can prove powerful forces on the storefront, and if Mega Man can get the second collection on the board. Maybe Hyrule Warriors will even hit number one? Happy Gaming!
