If anyone doubted that nostalgia sells, then this week is pretty much a confirmation of that fact as Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy lands in first place, a first for the Crash series.
Following the launch of Wipeout: Omega Collection and the recent release of Tekken 7, the first main entry into the series for a few years now, as well as the hype around the Mini SNES it’s clear that the gaming industry is on a nostalgia kick.
The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is the latest remaster to cause a stir as it brings three classic titles in one tasty package. It’s definitely a winner as it has landed in first place this week and has become the biggest console exclusive launch of the year so far beating out the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn.
Elsewhere in the charts there are more nostalgia-driven titles with Micro Machines: World Series landing in second place this week. Finally, Elite: Dangerous has managed to debut in seventh place as it lands on PS4. This title began back with Elite back in 1985, and it’s definitely come a long way since then.

- Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
- Micro Machines: World Series
- Grand Theft Auto V
- Forza Horizon 3
