After a few weeks of digital exclusivity on the Nintendo Switch, Metroid Prime Remastered has finally landed in retail stores across the UK.

Although the release wasn't quite enough to knock Hogwarts Legacy off its throne, Retro Studios' shooter managed to take the silver, selling around half of what the original managed back in 2003. According to Chris Dring from Games Industry, this also makes Metroid Prime Remastered the fourth biggest boxed launch of the entire franchise.

Considering the title shadow dropped digitally beforehand, this is still an impressive debut!

Elsewhere, Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe slipped down to sixth place this week, while Octopath Traveler II fell out of the top ten entirely to land at number fourteen. The Switch version of Team Asano's RPG is still dominating over the PlayStation, accounting for 81% of the platform split.

The only other newcomer this week is Team Ninja's Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which enters the charts at number eight. The split here leans heavily towards Sony's platform, making up 89% on PS5, 7% on PS4, and 5% on Xbox Series X/S (though it's worth remembering that Wo Long is a Day One Game Pass launch).
