Team Sonic Racing is the first Sonic game to top UK Charts since 2008


Sonic and friends burn into first place

Team Sonic Racing is this week’s UK Charts number one. Sumo Digital’s kart racer usurped Bethesda’s Rage 2 in physical sales to take the chequered flag, becoming the first game featuring the blue blur to hit the top spot since 2008 Wii release Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games.

Rage 2 and fellow heavy-hitter Mortal Kombat 11 have both slipped a few places, while Sony Bend’s biker adventure Days Gone remains steadfast at number two. With regards to new releases, the Switch edition of Assassin’s Creed III: Remastered debuted at number 15, while Sony’s immersive golf sim Everybody’s Golf VR launched at number 22.

Elsewhere in the charts, Focus Home’s gripping adventure A Plague Tale: Innocence and Rebellion’s headhunting shooter Sniper Elite V3 Remastered both peaked hard, having dropped out of the upper tier to settle at number 31 and 28 respectively.
