Anthem's reign at the top of the UK Charts has ended, with Devil May Cry 5 jumping straight to the summit.
It's Capcom's second No.1 of the year following the success of Resident Evil 2 and the game matches the No.1 achievement of DmC: Devil May Cry in 2013. The launch sales between the two DMC games are almost identical, although - as always - these charts do not include download data, and considering the rise of digital sales, we can assume this new game has outperformed the 2013 reboot.
Devil May Cry 5 has performed best on PS4, with Sony's console accounting for 80 per cent of the physical sales.
EA's Anthem therefore loses its No.1 position and actually slips to No.4 with a 62 per cent sales drop week-on-week. Red Dead Redemption 2 jumps three places back to No.2 with a three per cent sales increase, while Mario Kart 8: Deluxe races five places to No.3. Mario Kart 8 actually reached No.3 despite dropping four per cent in sales week-on-week, which just goes to highlight what a slow week it has been for UK games retail.
Last week's biggest new release, The LEGO Move 2 Videogame, slides from No.4 to No.7, although the game only dropped 32 per cent in sales week-on-week - a pretty good performance for a title in its second week on shelves.
Also new last week was Dirt Rally 2.0. The Codemasters title dropped 69 per cent in sales week-on-week and fell from No.6 to No.21.
