British Chart: There was no thanks in the confrontation between Link and Gollum
The new challenger in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom could have been The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, but everyone can guess that it wasn’t an usurpation.
As is normal after the release period, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sales numbers fall on Mondays and Sundays. Nintendo’s hit dropped 50 percent in the UK’s weekly box office chart, but was still far ahead of FIFA 23 – the soccer game took silver after a healthy discount.
And do you know who’s missing from the podium? Hottest appearance of the past week! Although The Lord of the Rings: Gollum made it into the top 10, namely in the middle field, we expect more from The Lord of the Rings, especially in the week of its release. By the way, 70 percent of Szméagol’s hard-hitting adventures were bought by PS5 players, 20 percent by Xbox fans, and 10 percent by PS4 players. Of course, the list doesn’t measure PC and Xbox digital sales, where numbers are always very important.
Another interesting thing is that, in the shadow of the success of Tears of the Kingdom, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has also gained new traction. The 2017 title trailed Gollum on the list.
