On Twitter, the official LEGO Star Wars Game account also confirmed the series’ “biggest global Lego game launch”.

Quite the achievement and an amazing rebound for the franchise. Last week, we already reported that the Skywalker Saga nearly matched initial Elden Ring sales in the UK.  Not only did the title sell amazingly well in retail, but the game performed even better digitally with Xbox being the dominant platform when it comes to downloaded copies of the game. Overall, including physical sales as well, PlayStation was the biggest platform for the game with 39% of all sales in the UK.

Ultimately, The Skywalker Saga is still at its best when you’re pummeling enemies with your plastic fists or lightsaber. Shooting feels a bit finicky and unsatisfying, with basic stormtroopers taking way too many shots to take down. Given how little punishment there is for death in Lego games, there’s really no reason not to just charge recklessly into the fray and start punching most of the time. Blasting stuff with an X-Wing or other spacecraft is generally more fun, although the level of intensity is sometimes a bit lacking.
