Rockstar’s action-adventure is back at No.1 for its sixth week at the top spot.

Now that the dust has settled after a barrage of new releases, Red Dead Redemption 2 has retaken the No.1 spot in the UK charts, as Kingdom Hearts 3 drops to No.3.

GamesIndustry.biz reports that the title saw a 14% rise in sales week-on-week, and coupled with Kingdom Hearts 3’s 87% drop in sales, it was enough to reverse the chart positions of the week before for both games.

FIFA 19 rose to No.2, while Resident Evil 2 dropped to No.4 after a 67% drop in sales from the previous week.

Both Kingdom Hearts 3 and Resident Evil 2 has notable chart debuts; Kingdom Hearts 3 had the most successful UK launch of the series, while Resi 2 was Capcom’s biggest launch since Resident Evil 7.

The rest of the chart is pretty much the same as last week, with a bit of a reshuffle seeing GTA 5, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate each drop to No.10 and No.9 respectively, while Spyro Reignited Trilogy is up two places, to No.8.

We may even see the purple dragon make an appearance on Switch this summer.
