Kingdom Hearts 3 is series' best UK launch

Taking the Mickey.

Kingdom Hearts 3 has earned the long-running Square Enix Disney mash-up series its best ever launch in the UK.

Boxed copy sales were just shy of last week's number one, Resident Evil 2, which drops to second place this week.

As ever, UK numbers company Chart-Track does not count digital sales, although this is unlikely to make any difference - it has been 13 years since Kingdom Hearts 2 launched here for the PlayStation 2 back in 2006. Perhaps just as incredibly, there have been 11 Kingdom Hearts remakes, spin-offs and re-releases launched in the interim.

"Overwrought, unsatisfying storytelling takes the shine off a gorgeous and ambitious finale," Chris Schilling wrote in Eurogamer's Kingdom Hearts 3 review. Yikes!

Here's the full top 10:

  1. Kingdom Hearts 3
  2. Resident Evil 2
  3. Rootin' Shootin' Cootin' Tootin'
  4. FIFA 19
  5. COD: BLOPS 4
  6. New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  9. GTA5
  10. Spyro Trilogy
