Earlier than we delve into the numbers it’s vital to keep in mind that this knowledge solely covers gross sales of bodily copies of video games over the previous week, which implies it may be fairly totally different from the digital gross sales chart.
So, clearly, Tears of the Kingdom is holding onto the highest slot regardless of gross sales happening by 73%. I do know that sounds substantial, however we really see related drops with most huge, closely hyped releases as a result of so many individuals purchase it on day one.

That additionally means Nintendo at the moment has three Zelda video games within the prime 20. Not too shabby.
By way of newcomers, 2K LEGO Drive has entered the charts in seventh. Not precisely a large launch however contemplating the boring title and lack of hype, I don’t suppose it’s something to be upset by. It’s accomplished decently when it comes to crucial reception, too, holding down a 73 on Opencritic.
Pokemon Scarlet managed to clamber as much as sixth from sixteenth which could have been at the very least partially on account of a promotion on Amazon.
