Destiny 2 celebrates its third successive week at number one on the UK sales charts. Good job Destiny 2. In other news, six new releases have joined the Top 40 list this week. The first new release on the list is Project Cars 2 by Bandai Namco and Slightly Mad Studios. Project Cars 2 debuted at number two. The original game launched at number one back in 2015.
NBA 2K18 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 each took a step back this week, with NBA 2K18 still ahead of PES 2018.
Nintendo’s Pokken Tournament DX a.k.a. the first ever Pokemon game for Switch debuted at number five. Grand Theft Auto V has already begun its inevitable ascend back to the north of the charts. *Insert an unfunny joke about Game Of Thrones here.* I'm such a nerd.
Former ruler of the charts, Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is now at number seven. Last week, the Bandicoot was at number nine. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy fell to number eight. Forza Horizon 3 is at number nine, and Lego Worlds just got back into the Top 10.
Moving on to the rest of the Top 40. Can't miss talking about the other new releases. Marvel vs Capcom Infinite debuted at number 12.
