LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has got off to a strong start at UK physical retail.
Even without digital, it is the biggest LEGO game launch of all time, beating the previous best -- 2008's LEGO Indiana Jones -- by 8.4%.
In terms of boxed sales, The Skywalker Saga is the second fastest selling game of the year behind Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but ahead of Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring.
31% of boxed sales were on PS5, 26% on Nintendo Switch, 23% on Xbox and 20% on PS4.

LEGO's success this week means that Kirby and the Forgotten Land drops to No.2 after two weeks at No.1. Sales are down 24% week-on-week, but the Nintendo game continues to do well and is on course to be the biggest Kirby game of all time.
