Ubisoft's shooter The Division 2 has topped the UK physical sales charts once again after Yoshi's Crafted World beat it to the first place last week. The Easter price promotions also helped some past hits get back to higher places.

The Division 2 is once again the king of the physical sales in the UK after falling behind Nintendo's Yoshi's Crafted World last week.

Ubisoft's looter shooter started its debut week in the first place back in March, but Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice took the top spot in its own launch week, selling only 800 copies more than The Division 2.

However, The Division 2 once again holds the top spot in a fairly quiet week for game releases. The only new game that was released in the last seven days was Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, which debuted at No.26.

The Division 2 still took a 30 per cent hit in sales when compared to the previous week while Yoshi's Crafted World sold 61 per cent worse and it's knocked down three places.

FIFA 19 climbed two places this week, despite a 23 per cent drop in sales and it holds second at the moment. From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is at number five, followed closely by Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2.

Gfk Chart-Track also mentions that several early Easter price promos pushed a couple of earlier hits back into the Top 40 list. Ubisoft's action-adventure Assassin's Creed Odyssey almost re-entered the Top 10 list with 187 per cent sales boost - enough for eleventh place. Also, Shadow of the Tomb Raider's sales almost doubled which put the trilogy finale at No.21.
