The latest UK charts are in and it's a strong one for strategy games and zombies. At the top of the pile this week, we have the interminably delayed Dead Island 2, which was finally released last week after its initial announcement back in 2014.
Next, Minecraft Legends comes in at number two, and its sales on the Switch were particularly impressive, making up 76% of the platform split. PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 made up 12% and 7% respectively, while Xbox managed the remaining 5%. Of course, it's always worth mentioning that the game is available on day one on Game Pass.
Meanwhile, Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp took the bronze this week and came in third place. The game, developed by WayForward, finally launched on April 21st, 2023 after its significant delay from 2022 in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
