Pokémon Legends: Arceus remains No.1 for third week running | UK Boxed Charts

Dying Light 2 holds onto its second spot

Pokémon Legends: Arceus once again took the top spot of the UK boxed charts, for the third consecutive week, despite a 45% drop in sales.

Dying Light 2 had to settle for No.2 again for its second week in the charts. Sales for Techland's title only decreased 57% week-on-week, selling particularly well on PS5 (42% of all units shifted) and PS4 (29%).

The rest of the Top Ten was very similar to the previous week, with FIFA 22, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing: New Horizons all keeping their spots from No.3 to No.5.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition reentered the charts at No.6 following its physical launch on Switch on February 11. Nintendo's platform accounted for 91% of all GTA Trilogy units sold last week, with the title's sales overall increasing 771% compared to the week before.

There was no new entry in the charts this week, but a few titles reappeared further down the list due to retail promotions on Switch, including Lego The Incredibles at No.28 and Lego DC Super-Villains at No.34.

Here is the GfK UK Boxed Top Ten for the week ending February 12:
