Bandai Namco and From Software’s Dark Souls 3 debuts at the top of the UK sales chart for the week ending April 18. According to data supplied by sales monitor Chart-Track, it has had the strongest launch week performance in the series’ history.
In 2011, the first Dark Souls debuted for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 at No.3. The sequel, Dark Souls 2, made its debut in 2014 at No.2, behind EA’s Titanfall. Dark Souls 3, however, launches at No.1 with a 61 percent increase in sales over Dark Souls 2.
Following it is Tom Clancy’s The Division at No.2, which moves up one spot. EA Sports UFC 2, however, climbs five positions from No.8 to No.3, while last week’s No.1, Quantum Break, slips down to No.4.
Further down the chart, Lego Marvel Avengers re-enters the top ten, ahead of the upcoming theatrical release of Captain America: Civil War.
