The Shadow Of The Colossus Remake storms the UK Chart, stealing the top spot from Monster Hunter: World

Given the PlayStation 4’s outstanding sales numbers as of late, it’s easy to see why a console exclusive is able to hit the top spot on the charts these days. Tie this in with the fact Shadow Of The Colossus is a massive fan favourite and its a match made in heaven.

Originally released back in 2005, the PlayStation 4 remake of Shadow Of The Colossus features improved visuals and enhanced performance to bring the classic back to life for the modern generation. It is truly outstanding what the studio has been able to do when overhauling the game from the ground up again, 13 years later.

Monster Hunter: World is its victim this week with the open world action game slipping down to third even though it has had gamers raving and multi-format sales to back it up. UFC 3 remained in the 2nd spot which should make the execs at EA smile given their titles troubles as of late.

Elsewhere in the top 40, Overwatch: Game Of The Year Edition reentered the charts. Approaching its second year anniversary and its ongoing Year Of The Dog event in full swing could have caused its newfound popularity. Oh… and a little thing called The Overwatch League may have added one or two of those.
