Far Cry Primal has secured a second week at No.1, preventing Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD from earning the Wii U a rare week on top, reports Chart-Track.
Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 dropped a place into third, whilst Sony’s Heavy Rain & Beyond Two Souls collection is new in eighth – though both games were also being pushed digitally on PSN.
Capcom’s Street Fighter 5 dropped another place to see it slip out of the top 10 into 11th, whilst Mortal Kombat XL, the week’s only other new release, is new at No.21.

Next week’s chart will be all about how big Ubisoft’s The Division can be at launch, with the publisher needing another big franchise after several stumbles with Assassin’s Creed. There’s no doubt the game will debut at No.1, but can it outperform Watch Dogs, which became the publisher’s fastest-selling game back in May 2014 and the UK’s biggest launch for a new IP?
