Havertys announces special cash dividend for common, Class A common stock

Nintendo’s (NTDOY) latest Switch exclusive “Fire Emblem Engage” was the top-selling physical video game in the U.K. in its launch week, Gamesindustry.biz’s Christopher Dring reports, citing data from GfK. The strategy game’s launch sales are 31% lower than its predecessor, namely 2019’s “Fire Emblem: Three Houses,” yet still is the second biggest launch for the franchise in the U.K., Dring says. Meanwhile, Sony‘s (SONY) “The Last of Us Part 1” for the PlayStation 5 returned to the charts following its September 2022 release, seeing a 238% spike in sales week-on-week, Dring says, noting that the game’s sales have been boosted by the HBO (WBD) series adaptation that is currently airing. Other top sellers for the week ending January 21, 2023 in the U.K. include EA‘s (EA) “FIFA 23,” Sony’s “God of War Ragnarok,” Nintendo’s “Pokemon Scarlet/Violet” and “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” and Activision Blizzard’s (ATVI) “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.” Reference Link
