Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled tops the UK charts

In fact, the remastered kart racer is the third-biggest launch in the UK so far this year

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was far and away the best-selling game in the UK last week, eclipsing its nearest rival with nearly eight copies of the game sold for every copy of FIFA 19 that was shifted at UK retailers over the last seven days.

Outselling a year-old football game, even here in the UK, isn't that noteworthy, but the news that it sold four times as many copies as Sonic Team Racing did during its first week on sale puts things into perspective better, we think.

It's also worth noting that the Crash-themed kart racer is actually the third biggest launch of the year so far, and only sits behind Days Gone and Resident Evil 2 when it comes to week one sales here in the UK. Given how well Activision's previous remasters sold over the last couple of summers, including Crash Bandicoot: Nsane Trilogy (which remains the biggest launch in the franchise's history), it's a fair bet to say that it'll remain around the top ten for some time.

Elsewhere, the only debut of note this week was Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which only just made the top twenty (in at No.17), although the GfK Chart-Track top forty only currently takes retailer data into account, so there's a good chance that digital sales for that one will have been stronger than those at bricks and mortar stores. Anyway, here's this week's top ten:

1. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled / Activision
2. FIFA 19 / EA
3. Forza Horizon 4 / Microsoft
4. Days Gone / Sony
5. Red Dead Redemption II / Take-Two
6. Battlefield V / EA
7. Grand Theft Auto V / Take-Two
8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe / Nintendo
9. Tom Clancy's The Division 2 / Ubisoft
10. Anthem / EA
