Weekly Video Games Sales – Week of 03/16/2019

Capcom’s biggest franchise storms the All Formats Chart this week with ‘Resident Evil 2’, the remake of the 20 year old original, debuting at No1. The original PS1 ‘Resident Evil 2’ game launched at No1 back in April 1998 and since then the franchise has registered six more different All Formats No1 titles. We may only be 4 weeks in to 2019, but it is the biggest launch of the year so far and Capcom’s biggest lauch since ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ exactly 2 years ago. Both ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ and ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ climb one place to No2 and No3 respectively, while last week’s No1 ‘New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe’ drops to No4. A price promotion on ‘Just Cause 4’ helps it back in to the All Formats Top 40 at No22.
