DuckTales tends to make a staggering final-minute comeback in EMEAA charts


Life is like a hurricane in the EMEAA charts as one particular title pogo jumped up the combined physical and digital rankings by a lot more than 1,000 areas.

That title is DuckTales: Remastered, Capcom’s 2013 remake of the classic eight-bit Disney platformer. With the license set to expire, the publisher knocked 75% off the value just before the game was delisted — and fans have flocked to it.

DuckTales was the third largest promoting game of the week in the combined charts — final week, it was No.1,191 — and No.two in the digital rankings, up from No.709. Getting a download-only game, it naturally does not function in the retail charts.

Sadly, Scrooge McDuck’s final hurrah wasn’t adequate to unseat Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar’s evergreen seller is but once again No.1 in each the combined and digital charts, and third in the retail rankings.

Nintendo holds on to the leading spot in physical sales. Though Fire Emblem: 3 Homes drops to No.five, Super Mario Maker two is up one particular location to No.1.

Elsewhere in the combined charts, there is a new entry in the Best 10 as Paradox’s Age of Wonders: Planetfall debuts at No.7. This has been driven completely by digital sales as, regardless of getting a boxed released, the game does not seem in the Best 50 physical charts. It is No.three in digital.
