Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition has entered the UK multi-platform software sales chart at No. 1.
GamesIndustry.biz reports that the remake “sold more than double that the original managed back in August 2011,” although launch sales were “slightly below” those that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 achieved in comparison.
The data only counts boxed sales at retail, meaning that those that bought Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition through the Nintendo eShop are not factored into the game’s sales performance in the country.
Elsewhere, Borderlands Legendary Collection entered at No. 18, selling “barely 110 more units” than BioShock: The Collection which made its mark in No. 22.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons saw sales decrease 50 percent week-on-week, resulting in it slipping to No. 2 after three consecutive weeks at the top of the chart.
Mario Kart 8: Deluxe also saw a 63 percent decrease in sales week-on-week to fall from No. 2 to No. 12.
