Last week was packed with a number of notable new video game releases, though as per the latest weekly physical sales data released by the Gfk for the UK (shared by GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring on Twitter), none of the new releases were actually the region’s best-selling game last week. EA Sports FC 24 took the No. 1 spot, with Dragon’s Dogma 2 coming in at second place.

Capcom’s open world action RPG was “narrowly ahead” of Princess Peach: Showtime!, which slotted in at No. 3, while another new release, Rise of the Ronin, entered the charts at No. 5. Meanwhile, THQ Nordic’s Alone in the Dark reboot came in at No. 6.

Interestingly, as per Dring, owing to the significantly higher share of physical sales that Nintendo Switch games usually see in the UK, Princess Peach: Showtime! has had a “weak launch”, with sales lower than what the Mario vs. Donkey Kong remake managed upon its release last month. Even though Dragon’s Dogma 2 is only “narrowly” ahead of Princess Peach in the physical charts, when accounting for digital sales (data for which will arrive later in the week), it’s likely to have had a much better launch.

Meanwhile, Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown re-entered the charts at No. 10, a whopping 693 percent increase in sales from last week, courtesy of Amazon’s Spring Sale.
