It's been an eventful week when it comes to new arrivals but not in the top 10, which helped Nintendo and Good Feel's game Yoshi's Crafted World to first place in UK's all-formats chart. Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered debuted in ninth place.

Nintendo's side-scrolling platformer is the eighth installment in Yoshi's franchise and was originally planned to launch in January 2019, later to be delayed for March.

In retrospect, it was probably a good call, as it cleared up much of the competition that Yoshi's Crafted World would've faced had it launched in January.

Tom Clancy's The Division 2 has stuck to its guns and retained the second place in the chart, and although it didn't reach first place - it seems to be doing better than last week 's winner.

Which is, of course, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, whose performance in the last week of March 2019 earned it a fall from grace and third place, just ahead of EA's FIFA 19.

Nintendo's success with Yoshi's Crafted World brushed off of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as well, which came in fifth. Well, success and some of Nintendo's discounts, that is.

Far Cry: New Dawn, Ubisoft's offshoot of Far Cry 5, has been doing pretty great in retail all things considered, by which we mean the fact that Ubisoft reused assets and pretty much put the fifth instalment in the franchise in different garments. 

Ubisoft are maintaining the momentum too, albeit the discount one, and they're managing to keep Far Cry: New Dawn in the top 10.

The only other newcomer to the list is Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered, whose launch brought about the removal of the original from Steam and Uplay.

Even though the likes of Generation Zero and The Walking Dead: The Final Season have launched in the previous week, neither of them ended up making the top 10.
