Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has topped the UK physical chart in its debut week, ending the dominance of Infinity Ward's shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Bandai Namco's open-world action title Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot has debuted top of the UK video game retail charts despite being out for only three days. Kakarot's debut at the top spot also means that Infinity Ward's shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has finally been pushed to the second place, after month-long dominance on the top.

It is a pretty strong launch for Kakarot, with sales up 13 per cent over the previous Dragon Ball game, which is Dragon Ball Fighterz, released back in January 2018. To some, seeing Dragon Ball game at the top of such a strong chart may come as a surprise, but the results show that Bandai Namco's title is a quality game that has been long-anticipated by the fans of the franchise.

As for the rest of the list, there's a huge influx of Nintendo 3DS games. WarioWare Gold is at No.5 while Yo-Kai Watch makes No.8. There is also a lot of 3DS titles outside of the top 10. The reason for this is a big sale at UK retailer Argos, who slashed the prices to just a few pounds.

Here is the full UKIE/GSD Top Ten for the week ending on 18 January 2020. Keep in mind that these only include physical sales, not digital.

  1. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot
  2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
