Ghost of Tsushima dominates weekly UK sales with Paper Mario a distant second
Sucker Punch's samurai adventure falls short of The Last of Us 2 at its premiere.
Last week the premiere of two highly anticipated exclusive titles took place. We are talking about Ghost of Tsushima and Paper Mario: The Origami King, which, to the surprise of few, have obtained the first and second place in the lists of UK weekly sales in physical format. According to data released by Games Industry, the epic open world samurai of Sucker Punch has completely dominated the charts in the week of its premiere, although without reaching the figures that The Last of Us 2 had in its premiere.
Ghost of Tsushima has obtained the first position with sales 7% higher than Days Gone in its day, a comparison made as both are new Sony exclusive IPs that hit the market. Not only has it improved these figures, but its sales have been four times bigger than those of the second title on the lists, Paper Mario: The Origami King, which has not had a bad premiere either: it has sold more copies than the Super Paper Mario of 2007, which makes it the best-selling Paper Mario title in the week of its UK premiere.
With the debut of these games, F1 2020 moves from Mercedes to McLaren by descending to third position, with a drop of 59% in its sales after the week of its premiere. Even so, the Codemasters title stayed ahead of Animal Crossing: New Horizons this week, with The Last of Us: Part II in fifth position, all of them games published this year 2020. Next, we show you the top seller in UK for last week (GfK data):
