Top 10 UK Games Chart - Zelda: Link's Awakening Dethrones Borderlands 3

Recommended Posts


Nintendo's Switch exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening has debuted at the top of the UK's physical sales chart, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. The game's impressive launch week means last week's No.1, Borderlands 3, slips to No.2 for the week ending September 21.

It's a busy week for new releases, but save for Link's Awakening, none manage to break into the top 10. Truck Driver is the most successful in No.11, while the new Switch version of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch launches at No.23. Finally, the remastered PS4 edition of the same game is just behind at No.26.

But it's the new Zelda game that is this week's big winner, and it was a hit with critics, too. The Link's Awakening reviews were universally positive and included an 8/10 from GameSpot in our own verdict.

"Though the remake has a couple of blemishes, it's still an easy game to recommend," wrote our reviewer, Peter Brown. "People speak of Link's Awakening as the secret best Zelda game. That's a tough call to make, but it's definitely one of the best. If you haven't touched a classic Zelda game in a while, Link's Awakening will almost instantly transport you back to the '90s. It's simple, in many ways, but the orchestrated journey still conveys a sense of adventure, and this new version is without question the best way to experience it. And more than anything else, it will put a smile on your face. Remakes are a dime a dozen nowadays and often easy to overlook. Don't make that mistake with Link's Awakening." You can read more in our full Zelda: Link's Awakening review.
