UK Charts: Two Point Hospital debuts at No.2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare returns to No.1

Two Point Hospital was the second best-selling boxed game in the UK last week.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare enjoyed a 30% increase in sales week-on-week, and keeps Sega's hospital sim from the top spot. Of course, with digital combined, it's possible that Two Point Hospital was the real No.1. We will receive the digital data later in the week.

The game's predecessor, Theme Hospital, reached No.1 back in 1997.

The most successful platform for Two Point Hospital was Nintendo Switch, with 55% of boxed sales coming on Nintendo's hybrid platform. 34% of sales were on PS4, with 12% on Xbox One.

It wasn't the only new release in the charts this week, with Rune Factory 4 Special on Switch coming in at No.17.

Last week's biggest new release was the double pack of Vanquish and Bayonetta, and that has dropped out of the Top 40 entirely. The other new title was Hunt: Showdown, which falls 46% in sales and drops from No,29 to No.40

The big risers in the charts this week all benefited from price activity at retail. Ubisoft's The Division 2 re-enters the Top Ten at No.7 (up from 12th place), Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is at No.8 (rising from No.17 after a 17% jump in sales), and Crash Bandicoot Racing Nitro-Fueled leaps from No.22 to No.10 after a 35% sales improvement week-on-week.

With Team Sonic Racing at No.12 and Mario Kart 8: Deluxe at No.6, there are three kart racing games in the top part of the UK boxed charts.

The recent PS4 game Dreams continues to perform relatively steady after a muted launch three weeks ago. This week, sales of the creation game dropped 33%, but it is still in the Top 20 at No.19.
