Leadership in the ranking for the third week in a row keeps GTA V.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses was released on July 26th exclusively on the Nintendo Switch and ranked second in the EMEAA Combined Chart, which includes countries in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
The game at the same time led the top 10 retail rankings, which also included three more exclusive console Nintendo – Super Mario Maker 2, Mario Kart 8 DX and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 – and the Switch-version of Minecraft.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which was also released on July 26, finished sixth in the combined chart. Earlier, Bethesda shooter gave way to Fire Emblem: Three Houses in the British retail.
Thanks to discounts, Marvel’s Spider-Man, which moved up from 25th place to seventh place, and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 also hit the top ten of the combined EMEAA-region charts, and the shooter was placed at the eighth position instead of 127th.
Successful sales of GTA V, which allowed the game to maintain leadership in the charts for the third week in a row, are explained by analysts with the release of the GTA Online update. The update added the casino to multiplayer mode – and attracted a record number of players per day and per week since the launch of GTA V in 2013.
