Kingdom Hearts' return is a chart-topper

The highly-anticipated sequel has finally landed as of last week, and it was a success with PS4 players in particular


January started the year strong in terms of game releases, as not only did we have Resident Evil 2 topping the UK physical charts on release, but now Square Enix's long-awaited RPG Kingdom Hearts III has done the same in its first week.

It's the most successful UK launch that the series has seen and more than doubles that of Kingdom Hearts II 14 years ago. 82% of players bought the game on PlayStation 4 - which isn't a surprise considering it used to be a PlayStation exclusive.

Resident Evil 2 falls to second place with a 67% decline in sales, and below that we see more of the usual suspects like Call of Duty, Red Dead Redemption 2, and various Nintendo giants that we're used to seeing in the top 10.

For the full top 10 list you can check down below:

1. Kingdom Hearts III / Square Enix
2. Resident Evil 2 / Capcom
3. Red Dead Redemption 2 / Rockstar
4. FIFA 19 / EA
5. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 / Activision
6. New Super Mario Bros. U / Nintendo
7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / Nintendo
8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate / Nintendo
9. Grand Theft Auto V / Rockstar
10. Spyro Reignited Trilogy / Activision

Will Kingdom Hearts hold onto the top spot?
