Amazon Prime Day boosts Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga back at the top | UK Boxed Charts

The retail giant's deals pushed a number of AAA titles up the charts this week

Amazon's Prime Day deals have shaken the UK physical charts up this week, with Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga back at No.1.

Sales for Warner Bros' title were up 83% week-on-week, and particularly boomed on Switch (up 175%) and Xbox Series X|S (up 140%).

Further down the charts, a handful of Ubisoft games reappeared, boosted by Prime deals as well. Far Cry 6 saw its sales increase 275% week-on-week and charted at No.6.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla, which had been pushed out of the charts altogether two weeks ago, re-entered at No.11 following a 441% surge in sales. Watch Dogs Legion also had an impressive 777% boost, and made it to No.20.

Halo Infinite re-entered the list at No.14 with a 692% increase in sales, and so did Marvel's Avengers at No.29 with a 478% growth.

F1 2022, which had been at the top for the past two weeks, resisted well to the wave of older titles re-entering the charts and settled for No.2 with sales down 46% week-on-week.

Klonoa: Phantasy Reverie Series, which debuted at No.5 last week, dropped to No.28 following a 77% decrease in sales.

There were no new entries in the charts this week.
