Physical edition of Stray launches at No.3 | UK Boxed Charts

Splatoon 3 racks up third consecutive week at the top of the retail charts

Stray was the highest selling new release of the past week, landing at No.3 in its debut week.

While the feline adventure was released digitally for PS5, PS4 and PC in July, Annapurna Interactive published a physical edition for PS5 last week. The game is also available to PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers at no additional cost.

The only other new release to enter the charts this week was Square Enix's fantasy strategy game The DioField Chronicle, which launched at No.17.

Splatoon remains the biggest selling boxed game of the week, racking up a third consecutive No.1 despite a 44% drop in sales.

Nintendo also took No.2 with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe rising one place, although sales were down 5% compared to last week.

Two games actually saw healthy rises in sales this week. Grand Theft Auto 5 sold 21% more units and rose from No.9 to No.5, and a retailer promotion boosted Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga by 43%, up from No.18 to No.10.
