Now Playing: Sekiro: A Beginner's Guide To Being The Best Shinobi

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice takes top spot in the UK all format physical sales chart in its debut week. Sales monitor Chart-Track says the top of the chart was "close" this week, as From Software's new game forces last week's No.1, The Division 2, down to No.2 for the week ending March 23.

Elsewhere the chart is full of familiar faces. FIFA 19 finishes at No.3, while Rockstar's huge open-world games Grand Theft Auto V (No.4) and Red Dead Redemption 2 (No.5) round out the top five. Battlefield V re-enters the top 40 at No.18, likely boosted by the impending launch of its battle royale mode, Firestorm. Aside from Sekiro, no brand-new titles enter the chart this week.

Sekiro has also enjoyed a strong critical reception, including a 9/10 in GameSpot's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice review-in-progress. "Sekiro marries From Software's unique brand of gameplay with stealth action to deliver an experience that is as challenging as it is gratifying," wrote Tamoor Hussain.

Currently making my way through From’s latest and greatest and all I gotta’ say is… MERCY!!!

I love the changes From has made to the usual Souls formula (in before comments about it technically not being a Souls game.) and if anything they really help this title stand out more-so than any of the previous games in the franchise.

Also, is it just me or does Sekiro seem harder than other souls games? It seems to be easier in some respects (pause feature, easier to one hit/stealth kill.) but in other aspects it feels more brutal, skill based, and unforgiving than previous Souls game.

I swear, If I have to fight that D@mn Shinobi Hunter again! Ugh.

Any out there having a blast with Sekiro… or want to throw their controller against the wall?

Does the whole UK population own two copies of GTA V each or something? There must be idiots buying copies breaking them then buying another copy or something.

@gamingdevil800: My personal belief is that they use them as coasters.
