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

Although the release was not enough for the roads Hogwarts Legacy From its perch, the shooter from Retro Studios managed to take home the silver medal, selling about half as much as the original did in 2003. According to Chris Dring of Game Industry, this also makes Metroid Prime Remastered the fourth-biggest box launch of the entire franchise.

Considering the shade of the title that was previously digitally dropped, this is still an impressive debut!

Elsewhere, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe fell to sixth place this week, while Octopath Traveler II fell out of the top 10 entirely to land at number fourteen. The Switch version of Team Asano’s RPG still dominates PlayStation, accounting for 81% of the platform’s division.

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