In the UK, it is currently the sixth Zelda video game to enjoy enduring popularity.
Despite a 73% dip in sales week over week, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has spent a second week atop the charts.
It appears to be a considerable dip, but it’s not unusual for a video game to generate a lot of excitement and have a strong week in terms of sales. When it was published lately, the video game ended up being the best packaged release of the year.
After only two weeks on the market, Tears of the Kingdom has surpassed Link’s Awakening on Switch and Ocarina of Time 3D on 3DS to become the sixth most popular Zelda game in UK history.
LEGO 2K Drive, the only recently released title, debuted at No. 7 today. The video game’s launch is not particularly significant, and its separation from the Zelda launch will have had an impact. There is a lot of potential for this video game to develop over time because the LEGO video games often sell for a very long period. 37% of physical sales of LEGO 2K Drive were made on the PS5, 31% on the Nintendo Switch, 18% on the Xbox, and 14% on the PS4.
Pokémon Scarlet has returned to the Top Ten courtesy to an Amazon price cut, moving up 12 spots to No. 6 on the strength of a 124% boost in sales.
Returning to Zelda, Breath of the Wild, the game that preceded Tears of the Kingdom, is still ranking eighth despite a 21% drop in sales from the previous week. Skyward SWord HD is at position 14 with a week-over-week sales gain of 342%. At the UK supermarket Asda, the Wii remaster was discounted to 15 pounds.
