Crash Team Racing third-biggest UK physical launch this year

How do you like them wumpas.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fuelled is the UK's third-biggest launch this year in terms of physical copies sold, behind only Days Gone and Resident Evil 2.

Activision's kart-racing remake sold more discs during its launch week than other 2019 launches such as Mortal Kombat 11, Devil May Cry 5, Rage 2, The Division 2 and Anthem.

But despite racking up the numbers, Crash Team Racing didn't come close to matching the frankly astonishing launch week of Activision's N Sane Trilogy, back in June 2017. Then - and just on PlayStation 4 - the N Sane Trilogy sold twice the amount Crash Team Racing shifted this week across PS4, Switch and Xbox One.

Regardless, Crash Team Racing's success sounds well-deserved. It's fair to say our Chris Tapsell liked the game - deciding to call it Essential in Eurogamer's Crash Team Racing review.

"It's a gold-standard remaster," Taps wrote, "capturing the loveably janky, off-brand spirit of classic CTR - and then some."

The full top 10 lies below:

  1. Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fuelled
  2. FIFA 19
  3. Forza Horizon 4
  4. Days Gone
  5. Rooty Dooty Patooty Tooty
  6. Battlefield 5
  7. GTA5
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  9. The Division 2
  10. Anthem
