Persona 5 has finished top of the UK physical games chart in its first week on sale, as Mass Effect: Andromeda tumbles from No.1 to No.5 in the week ending April 8. Altus's title is the first JRPG to top the UK chart since 2013's PlayStation 3 exclusive Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and it's the biggest Persona launch ever in the UK.

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands maintains its position at No.2, as does Lego Worlds at No.3. Grand Theft Auto V continues to chart well at No.4.

Another Lego title, Lego City Undercover, re-enters the chart this week at No.8 following its release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. The open-world game originally released for Wii U in 2013.

The rest of the chart is made up of many familiar faces; check out the full list below courtesy of sales monitor Chart-Track. Note this table does not include digital sales data, and so should not be considered representative of all UK game sales.

Person 5 has now shipped over 1.5 million copies worldwide. Its success follows an excellent critical reception, in which GameSpot awarded it 9/10.

"Persona 5 is a game that shouldn't be missed," said our reviewer, Lucy James. "It's stuffed to bursting point with gameplay ideas and presentation flourishes--there's an overwhelming level of artistry in every part of Persona 5, making it a truly standout entry in the series. It's a refined, effortlessly stylish RPG that will be talked about for years to come."
