New PS5 bundle sends Horizon Forbidden West back to No.1 | UK Boxed Charts

Nintendo Switch Online falls to No.2

Horizon Forbidden West is back at No.1 in the UK boxed charts, three months after it was first released.

The game’s sales rose 94% week-on-week following the release of a new official PS5 hardware bundle. That means Nintendo Switch Sports is down to No.2 after three weeks at No.1. The Switch exclusive saw physical sales drop 37% week-on-week.

The arrival of more PS5 stock has boosted sales of other titles on the platform, including Gran Turismo 7, which is at No.10 following a 38% sales rise, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, which re-enters the chart at No .15 after sales jumped 275%.

It’s a very quiet period for boxed game releases (and one that’s set to last all summer), but there is one new game in the charts — Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, which debuts at No.20.

Back to the Top Five, Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga slips to No.3 after a 30% sales slide, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe holds No.4 despite sales dropping 16%, while Pokemon Legends: Arceus is up one place to No.5 following a 5% sales increase.

Last week’s new release, Evil Dead – The Game, falls from No.5 to No.12 after a 51% sales drop.
