Lara Croft's new adventure debuts at number two


Two of the biggest releases of September have come out within a week of each other - Spider-Man and Shadow of the Tomb Raider - and as reported by GamesIndustry.biz, Spider-Man has actually held off competition from Lara Croft to stay at number one in the UK charts for a second week, with Shadow of the Tomb Raider making do with number two instead.

It's not all doom and gloom for Shadow of the Tomb Raider though, as week one sales are 25% higher than Rise of the Tomb Raider, although that launched as a timed exclusive for Xbox One while this one launches for PC and PS4 too. Compared to the first game in 2013 though sales are more than 70% down (even if these charts don't factor digital sales in), with 63% of sales coming on PS4, and the rest on Xbox One (PC is almost entirely digital).

Spider-Man sales are down 42% though, while NBA 2K19 comes in at number three, with 65% of sales on PS4 and 33% on Xbox One, with a tiny 2% on Switch. After a price cut we've also seen Elder Scrolls Online reappear in the charts too, and for the full top 10 take a look below.

Can Spider-Man get a third week?

1. Spider-Man / Sony
2. Shadow of the Tomb Raider / Square Enix
3. NBA 2K19 / 2K Sports
4. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy / Activision
5. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe / Nintendo
6. Grand Theft Auto V / Rockstar
7. F1 2018 / Codemasters
8. The Elder Scrolls Online / Bethesda
9. Lego The Incredibles / Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
10. Super Mario Odyssey / Nintendo
