"Square Enix's long-in-development Kingdom Hearts III has topped the UK charts in its first week.

It's the first time the franchise has topped the charts and it's the most successful UK launch on record for the series, at least since the original game proved such a major hit on PlayStation 2 (UKIE/GfK data currently doesn't stretch that far back).

Its sales are more than double that of its direct predecessor, which was released 14 years ago on PlayStation 2. And it's certainly more popular than the subsequent spin-offs and 'remix' versions."


"Because of its PlayStation heritage, it's unsurprisingly to discover that 82 per cent of the game's sales came on PS4, with Xbox One accounting for the remainder."
