Charts: Persona 5 tops the UK retail charts

It's the frst JRPG to take number one in four years.

The excellent Persona 5 became the first JRPG in more than four years (after Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in February 2013) to reach the top spot in the UK retail charts this week, while the top seller of the last two weeks, Mass Effect: Andromeda, tumbled down to fifth (-53% in sales), in what is likely another tightly contested chart. The re-release of Lego City Undercover managed to score eighth position on the all formats chart, but was only ranked second in the battle of Lego games, with Lego Worlds in third.

REVIEW. Written by Anders Baad Mai

"The narrative is courageous, the characters complex, the battle system refined, and it's all wrapped up in one of the most stylish games we've ever had the pleasure of getting lost in."
