UK charts: Kirby is No.1 for a second week

Kirby's 3d adventure for switch

The latest UK boxed game charts have come through for the week ending 2nd April and Nintendo’s excellent Kirby and the Forgotten Land remains the No.1 video game. Kirby’s first 3D platforming adventure is now the fourth best-selling Kirby game of all time in the United Kingdom. This week, two games climbed back up the charts and they were the acclaimed Elden Ring at No.2 and Pokemon Legends: Arceus at No.3. Again, the charts are for physical games only and don’t include digital sales. Here’s the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending 2nd April:

    1. I’d say so, yeah. It’s very much it’s own experience, not really any major connections to previous games in the series beyond having recurring characters like King Dedede and Meta Knight.

      Obviously plays quite differently to the older 2D games, but it translates across really well so you wouldn’t have any trouble going back and playing the older games afterwards if you wanted to.
      Honestly it’s a fantastic game, something that I think both newcomers and veterans can really enjoy.

      Hope this helped :)

    2. You don’t need to play any Kirby game to be able to enjoy a Kirby game. The only difference is recognizing reappearing past characters and knowing already what a reappearing ability can do, so you aren’t technically missing anything important if you have never played a Kirby game before.

  1. Happy WWE2k22 is in the top 10, waiting for the scheduled dlc. Figures the dlc with Rob Van Dam releases last of the scheduled dlc on July 19th. Surprised the NWO-4-life edition dlc with the members of the NWO is already available as a stand alone purchase. Unfortunately it’s kinda pricey for 4 wrestlers ($24.99) But it includes the NWO cards for MyFaction as well.
    Kinda lame the NWO-4-life dlc wasn’t included for free for season pass holders.

  2. Will this just tells developers.of Kirby to get off their lazy butts and start the sequel immediately. People don’t want to wait 2032 to play that. It’s bad enough us Pikmin fans have to wait over a decade for Pikmin 4 because they didnt start the game immediately after Pikmin 3 was finished in 2013 on Wii U. 9 years later still no Pikmin 4. Don’t want Kirby fans to have to suffer the same thing.
