Marvel’s Avengers Tops the UK Sales Charts, THPS1+2 Takes Silver Medal in Second Place

Last week saw the release of some big-name games, namely Marvel’s Avengers, NBA 2K21, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. But did they fare at retail in the UK? Very well, it turns out, with Square Enix’s first adventure into the Marvel Gaming Universe taking the top spot, despite division amongst critics and players.

Meanwhile, the universally acclaimed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 managed to chart in second place. It deserves it, too, as the game is a phenomenal throwback to the PS1 era that fans and critics have resonated with. You can check out our THPS1+2 review here.

And to top off the top three, Take 2’s NBA 2K21 enters the charts ahead of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. I… don’t really care for basketball, so make what you will of it opening at #3. #honest
