Anthem retains the top spot while Dead or Alive struggles in this week's UK Charts

March 04, 2019 1 min read

Electronic Arts' beleaguered sci-fi opera Anthem is celebrating a second week on top of the U.K. Charts, managing to hold off several new releases and the ever-present threat on mainstays like Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2.

The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame, the latest in a long line of clunky identikit releases, made its debut at number three, while Codemasters' DiRT Rally 2.0 jammed into sixth place. Red Lynx stunt-fest Trials Rising: Gold Edition, just scraped into the premier league at number ten.

Koei Tecmo's fighter, Dead or Alive 6, fared badly, failing to break even the Top 20, ultimately debuting at number 21, a rough start for a globally-recognised video game brand. Elsewhere in the charts it was business as usual, as Nintendo's range of first-party releases jockeyed for position alongside hang-around titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Far Cry: New Dawn, Metro Exodus, Resident Evil 2and FIFA 19.
