UK Charts: The Division 2 retakes No.1 in quiet week

Last week's chart-topper Yoshi drops to No.3, leading four Switch exclusives in the Top Ten

A lack of major new releases means that Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is back at the top of the UK retail charts.

In fact, the only new entry in the Top 40 this week was Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission at No.26.

Despite a 30% drop in sales week-on-week, The Division 2 took the No.1 spot for the second time -- the first being its debut week back in March.

Yoshi's Crafted World, which debuted at No.1 last week, is knocked down three places after a 61% drop in sales. It was denied No.2 by FIFA 19, which climbs two places this week (although sales dropped 23% week-on-week).

Yoshi's Switch outing is one of four exclusives for Nintendo's console in the Top Ten (albeit two of them are Wii U ports). It's followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at No.4, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe at No.9, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate at No.10.

Beyond this, it's an unsurprising Top Ten. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice drops two places to No.5, while Rockstar's best-selling duo of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto V both rise to No.6 and No.8 respectively (with The Lego Movie 2 Videogame in between them).

Gfk Chart-Track notes that several early Easter price promotions bumped a handful of past hits back into the Top 40. Assassin's Creed Odyssey re-enters at No.11 with a 187% sales boost, while Shadow of the Tomb Raider's sales almost doubled, putting it at No.21.

Here is the UKIE/GfK Top Ten for the week ending April 6th. As always, these are retail rankings only and do not count digital sales.
