Monster Hunter World claims series highest ever spot in UK charts

Monster Hunter World came in at number one in the UK charts for last week, the highest for any Monster Hunter game to date.

Before Monster Hunter World claimed the top spot, the previous highest was Monster Hunter Generations, which debuted at number three in 2016.

The success of World comes a year after Capcom topped the charts with Resident Evil 7 in 2017. The publisher announced today that Monster Hunter World has shipped 5 million copies worldwide, and the game's success in the UK is certainly part of that.

Dragon Ball FighterZ, the other big release of the week, came in at number two. This is also the highest ever for a Dragon Ball game, after Dragon Ball Xenoverse claimed the number three spot in 2015.

The rest of the top five is not totally surprising, with Call of Duty: WW2, FIFA 18, and GTA 5 claiming the third, fourth, and fifth spots respectively.


See the top ten below:

  • 1- Monster Hunter World
  • 2- Dragon Ball FighterZ
  • 3- Call of Duty: WW2
  • 4- FIFA 18
  • 5- GTA 5
  • 6- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • 7- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • 8- PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  • 9- Rocket League Collector's Edtiion
  • 10- The Inpatient
