Super Smash Bros Ultimate shoots to the top of EMEAA charts

Nintendo's first-party line-up continues to pay dividends, Just Cause 4 the only other new entry in the top ten

Super Smash Bros Ultimate debuted at the top of the EMEAA chart, making Nintendo's latest Switch exclusive the best-selling product across retail and digital in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Australia.

Smash Bros also topped the retail chart, which is just the latest sign that Nintendo has another big hit on its hands for the Switch. The eagerly anticipated game has already broken franchise and platform records in both the UK and Japan, though Nintendo still hasn't released an official sales number at the time of writing.

The other major new entry in the GSD charts was Just Cause 4, which placed second in the digital charts, seventh in the retail charts, and fifth in the combined charts. Avalanche Studios' sequel received a mixed response from critics, with Metacritic scores of 65 on PlayStation 4 and 71 on PC and Xbox One.

In the digital chart, Battlefield V was the number one game, but the biggest surprise was a resurgence of content for Company of Heroes 2. Expansion packs for Relic's real-time strategy game occupied the sixth, eighth, ninth and tenth spots, despite all of them having charted below 350th place in the previous week.

The combined retail and digital top ten is below:
