Nintendo Switch exclusive Astral Chain tops UK chart

Sold slightly more boxed copies than Control, Man of Medan.

Astral Chain - which, Martin reckons, is very good - has topped the UK physical games chart.

There's not a lot in it - 1500 boxed sales between first place and fourth - though Astral Chain is out on only a single format (Nintendo Switch) whereas the next three games are multiplatform. As ever, this chart does not track digital downloads.

Racing game Wreckfest was second, ahead of The Dark Pictures Anthology's first chapter Man of Medan in third. Control was a couple of hundred copies behind in fourth.

Honestly, it's just nice to see four new games at the top of the chart after a long, quiet summer.

Collection of Mana, another Switch release, made it in at 22nd.

The full top 10 lies below:

  1. Astral Chain
  2. Wreckfest
  3. Man of Medan
  4. Control
  5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  6. Crash Team Racing
  7. Super Mario Maker 2
  8. Marvel's Spider-Man
  9. GTA5
  10. The Division 2
