UK Ranking: Sales of Metroid Fear fell by 63%, but remained at No. 3

The latest UK boxed rankings have passed, and EA’s FIFA 22 is predictably still the best-selling game in the UK this week. Games Industry reported that sales of Nintendo Switch’s critically acclaimed Metroid Fear fell by 63%, but this was not enough to place it in third place from this week’s rankings. There is a new entry this week, it is Back 4 Blood, a zombie killing game developed by some developers behind the cult classic Left 4 Dead. For those who are interested, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles made its debut outside the top ten at No. 11. Here are the top ten GfKs for the week ending October 16th:
