Kingdom Hearts 3 made its UK debut at the top of the charts.

Kingdom Hearts 3 launched last week and has set a record for the series when it comes to UK sales, as the most successful title in the franchise to date. It’s also the first time a Kingdom Hearts game has topped the UK charts.

As notes, UKIE/GfK doesn’t extend further back than Kingdom Hearts 2 on PS2, but KH3 has still outperformed the various interim spin-offs, and sold over double the amount of units as Kingdom Hearts 2.

PS4 sales accounted for 82%, with the rest on Xbox One. As always, the data is based on physical copies only.

Resident Evil 2 has dropped to No.2 after debuting at the top of the charts.

Red Dead Redemption 2, FIFA 19, and Black Ops 4 round out the rest of the top five.

The top 10 looks almost exactly the same as last week, with the exception of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, and Crash Bandicoot N’Sane Trilogy. Both titles have dropped out of the top 10 entirely, while Spyro Reignited Trilogy has crept back in.
