Burnout tops chart for first time in 13 years

Meanwhile, Kirby for Switch has series-best launch.

Burnout Paradise Remastered has earned the franchise its first chart top spot in over a decade.

The much-missed smash 'em-up racing series last hit number one with Burnout Revenge, back in 2005. However, Burnout's best ever week of launch sales still belongs to Burnout 3: Takedown back in 2004.

Kirby Star Allies for Nintendo Switch, last week's other launch of note, earned Nintendo's pink puffball his (her?) biggest UK debut ever.

19 Kirby games have now launched in the UK, dating back to the days of the SNES. Star Allies sold more copies during its launch week than any other.

Otherwise, the top 10 remains largely unchanged. See it in full below:

  1. Burnout Paradise Remastered
  2. Kirby Star Allies
  3. FIFA 18
  4. Grand Theft Auto 5
  5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  6. Super Mario Odyssey
  7. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  8. EA Sports UFC 3
  9. Fallout 4
  10. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
