The latest boxed UK video game software charts have come through and as mentioned in this post, Splatoon 3 is No.1 for a third week for the week ending 24th September. There were a couple of reasonably big new releases in the charts and they were the physical edition of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 cat adventure game, Stray, which arrived straight in at No.3 and Square Enix’s new tactical IP The DioField Chronicle (demo available) which landed at No.17.
Splatoon remains the biggest selling boxed game of the week, racking up a third consecutive No.1 despite a 44% drop in sales. Nintendo also took No.2 with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rising one place, although sales were down 5% compared to last week.
