Burnout Paradise remasters the chart

EA’s ‘Burnout Paradise Remastered’ for PS4/Xbox One is a remaster of 2008’s 360/PS3 original, and claims No1 this week,  just like ‘Bunout Paradise’ did back in week 4, 2008.  ‘Burnout’ as a franchise has existed since the first Criterion-developed/Acclaim-published game launched in 2001 on PS2.  In terms of success, 2004’s ‘Burnout 3: Takedown’ (EA-published from here on in) is the biggest-seller both as week 1 and cumulative, claiming No1 in week 37, 2004.  The only other game in the series to claim No1 was 2005’s follow-up ‘Burnout Revenge’.   Nintendo’s ‘Kirby Star Allies’ for Switch debuts at No2 and becomes the most successful launch for a Kirby title, of which there have been 19 dating back to SNES/Gameboy releases in 1996 – prior to this week the highest week 1 Top 40 chart position for a Kirby title was jointly held by 2 games: No15 for 3DS ‘Kirby Triple Deluxe’ (Wk20, 2014) and No15 for 3DS ‘Kirby: Planet Robobot’ (Wk23, 2016).  EA’s ‘FIFA 18’ drops to No3.  Capcom re-enter at No13 with ‘Devil May Cry HD Collection’ thanks to PS4/Xbox One versions.  Maximum Games’ ‘Beast Quest’ debuts at No35 for PS4/Xbox One.
