Kirby And The Forgotten Land takes second place in the UK – Game Charts on April 2

Nintendo had another week in first place, as Ghostwire: Tokyo was confirmed as a major failure.

There were no major new entries on this week’s new physical sales charts, but the lack of competition shouldn’t take anything away from the achievement of Kirby And The Forgotten Land, which enjoyed an impressive small drop in second-week sales of just 43%.

Tiny Tina’s under-promoted Wonderlands fared better, with a drop of just 38%, although the majority of its sales are digital, which could make its overall performance even more enticing. No Ghostwire Covered in Sugar: Tokyo, which saw a 70% drop in sales as it went from its debut at number 11 to number 23.

Console version of Crusader Kings 3 was the only new entry in the charts this week, at number 40, but next week we’re sure to see Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga take over the top spot.
