The premiere of two highly anticipated exclusive titles took place last week. We are talking about Ghost of Tsushima and Paper Mario: The Origami King, which, to the surprise of few, have obtained first and second place in the weekly UK sales charts in physical format. According to data released by Games Industry, Sucker Punch’s epic open-world samurai has completely dominated the charts in the week of its release, albeit without reaching the numbers The Last of Us 2 had at its release.
Ghost of Tsushima has obtained the first position with sales 7% higher than those of Days Gone in its day, a comparison made as both new Sony exclusive IPs hit the market. Not only has it improved these figures, but its sales have been four times higher than those of the second title on the charts, Paper Mario: The Origami King, which has not had a bad premiere either: it has sold more copies than the Super Paper Mario 2007, which make it the best-selling Paper Mario title in the week of its UK release.
With the debut of these games, F1 2020 goes from Mercedes to McLaren when it dropped to the third position, with a 59% drop in sales after the week of its release. Even so, the Codemasters title remained ahead of Animal Crossing: New Horizons this week, with The Last of Us: Part II in the fifth position, all of the games published this year 2020.
