UK charts: Fire Emblem Engage is No.1 this week

Fire Emblem Engage characters

The latest boxed-video game software charts have come through for the biggest gaming market in Europe, the United Kingdom, and there’s a new No.1 this week and it is the newly released Fire Emblem Engage for the Nintendo Switch. However, the game’s launch wasn’t as big as 2019’s Fire Emblem Three Houses as launch sales were 31% lower, though it is still the second biggest Fire Emblem game launch here in the UK. Here’s the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending 21st January, 2023:

“The title’s launch sales are 31% lower than what its predecessor managed (2019’s Fire Emblem Three Houses). The new game has a more anime-style look to the graphics, which may have limited its Western appeal slightly. Yet even so, it is still the second biggest launch for the series in the UK, ahead of cult 3DS hit Fire Emblem Awakening.”
