Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes takes No.1 | UK Boxed Charts

The Switch title sold 45.3% more copies on its debut weekend than 2017's Fire Emblem Warriors

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes debuted at the top of the weekly UK physical charts, having released on June 24 on Switch.

This second entry in the Fire Emblem Warriors series easily surpassed its predecessor, selling 45.3% more copies on its debut week. Fire Emblem Warriors launched in October 2017 on 3DS and Nintendo Switch.

However, Three Hopes didn't quite reach the level of its sister franchise, Hyrule Warriors. It sold roughly 1% less on its debut weekend than 2018's Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition on Switch, and 76% fewer copies than 2020's Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.

Three Hopes was the only new entry in this week's charts.

Last week's No.1, Horizon Forbidden West, settled for No.2 with a slight 38% decrease in sales, while Mario Strikers remained steady at No.3 for a second week, despite a 37% drop.

Further down the charts, Super Mario Party reentered the list at No.34 following a 37% increase in sales week-on-week.

THQ Nordic's Wreckfest also reappeared, at No.35, following a 486% rise in sales after its Switch release on June 21.

Here is the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending June 25:
