It seems the UK remains bewitched by Bandai Namco’s latest effort.
The Witcher 3 was once again the biggest-selling game of last week, according to the latest UK retail charts from Ukie and GfK Chart-Track.
This is despite the title, which saw the largest game launch of 2015 upon release, experiencing a 44 per cent drop in sales week-on-week.
Meanwhile, Nintendo’s quirky squid-shooter Splatoon saw its sales halve during its second week, falling two spots to fourth place.
Splatoon’s decline opened up a space for long-running chart success Grand Theft Auto V to sneak back up to second place after three weeks sat in third position, despite a slightly 16 per cent drop in sales.
Rockstar’s record-breaking crime epic has been a constant force in the rankings during 2015, consistently remaining in the Top Five for the year to date.
Fellow stalwart FIFA 15 similarly climbed back up the charts, rising one place to third – regardless of sales slipping by almost a quarter (23 per cent).
In a reasonably slow week for the games industry, the only new release in the entire Top 40 last week was the Japanese sci-fi adventure title Steins;Gate for PS3 and Vita. The PQube-published game debuted at number 18.
Here is the All Formats Top Ten in full, for the week ending June 6th:
