The latest UK chart is in and after a wave of positive reviews, Kirby and the Forgotten Land has reached number one, easily beating the multi-platform release of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
Kirby’s performance makes it the biggest launch in the franchise, selling 2.5 times as many copies as 2018’s Kirby Star Allies, which was the previous record holder. It’s also now the fifth biggest Kirby game in the UK, right behind Kirby’s Adventure Wii (Kirby’s Return to Dream Land in the US).
Elsewhere on the UK charts, things are business as usual, but Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe has made a surprise comeback, jumping 10 spots from the previous week to finish at number 7.
On the other hand, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has returned, as expected, to the top 10, albeit just barely. Wave 1 of the Booster Course Pass has clearly given the game a slight boost, however whether it manages to hold its position remains to be seen.
Finally, Pokémon Legends: Arceus remains strong, dropping just one position from last week. It will be interesting to see how long the game manages to stay in the top 10 ahead of the launch of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
