Shadow of the Colossus' PlayStation 4 remake has topped the UK charts with sales that dwarf those of the game's original release.

The number of physical PS4 copies sold was 73 per cent up on the game's original PlayStation 2 release all the way back in February 2006.

That figure does not include any download copies of the game, either - something which UK numbers company Chart-Track still doesn't, well, track.

One other new title entered the chart: the Switch version of Dragon Quest Builders, which arrived in 31st place.

The rest of the UK top 10 was largely unchanged - here's the full list:

  1. Shadow of the Colossus
  2. EA Sports UFC 3
  3. Monster Hunter: World
  4. FIFA 18
  5. Grand Theft Auto 5
  6. Call of Duty: WW2
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Super Mario Odyssey
  9. Assassin's Creed Origins
  10. The Evil Within 2

Oli reported being thoroughly impressed in Eurogamer's Shadow of the Colossus review, calling the game "a melancholy masterpiece" and a "faithful and breathtakingly beautiful remake".
