Top 10 UK Games Chart: Crash Bandicoot Is A Smash Hit Once Again
Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy, now over a year old, continues to prove popular in the UK with another No.1 finish in the all formats sales chart this week. That makes it four weeks in a row at the top of the charts for Crash and co., while Lego The Incredibles finishes at No.2 for the second week running.
Below the two non-movers, Amazon Prime Day and hardware bundles mean it's a good week for Xbox One console exclusives: Sea of Thieves (No.3), Minecraft (No.4), and Forza Horizon 3 (No.6) all re-enter the charts for the week ending July 21. Sonic Mania Plus debuts at No.5, meanwhile.
Sea of Thieves sales may have been affected by the upcoming release of its biggest expansion since launch. The free Cursed Sails update is coming to Xbox One and PC versions of the game on July 31, bringing new enemy types, a new ship, and a new clan system named Alliances.
In our Sonic Mania Plus review, critic Matt Espineli called the platformer "the best Sonic game ever," made "even better than before" by this new Plus update. He awarded the game a 9/10.
