Now Playing: Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Review

Bandai Namco's Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown debuts at No.2 in the UK games chart, below only New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, which keeps its place atop the physical chart for the week ending January 19. Ace Combat sells better this week than big hitters such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and FIFA 19, which finish at No.3, No.4, and No.5, respectively.

The remainder of the chart stays largely unchanged in a week lacking many new releases. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate drops one place to No.6, while it's a good week once again for Activision's platforming remasters as Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Spyro Reignited Trilogy both manage a top 10 finish.

Ace Combat 7 enjoys "the biggest debut in the long running series' history," according to Chart-Track. It launched last week to a positive critical reception, including an 8/10 from GameSpot.

"Good aerial combat is important for a game involving jet fighters, but it's a given quality for Ace Combat," wrote Edmond Tran in our Ace Combat 7 review. "Skies Unknown boasts a beautiful photorealistic world, entertaining mission variety, and a reason to get excited about clouds. But most importantly, it carries renewed devotion to the history and stories of its fictional universe, and with that, it brings back the human, emotional center that makes it remarkable. Ace Combat 7 is a fantastic return for a series that is at its best when it wears its heart on its wings."
