It hasn’t been the best of starts for Capcom’s latest cross-over with Marvel in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Released last Tuesday — having nearly a full week to establish itself in the UK charts — the game could only manage a dismal twelfth spot, according to GfK Chart-Track. The game was even outperformed by not one but two current-gen re-releases with both Mario Kart 8: Deluxe and new entry Pokken Tournament DX — two first-party exclusives for the Switch — managing to sell more, landing at eleventh and fifth place respectively.
Destiny 2 turned out to be the number one spot for a third consecutive week — signalling Activision as, from a publisher stand-point, the company who’ve now held the top spot for the most weeks in the UK since the start of the year. Other new entries included Slightly Mad Studio’s Project Cars 2 which came in second alongside 2K’s NBA 2K18 which took third spot. While the game has garnered a fair-to-good consensus from critics prior to release, least in the UK, it seems the once (and arguably still) beloved cross-over fighting game hasn’t quite grabbed consumers’ attention.
