Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location knocks Minecraft off the top of US App Store charts

Indie horror game Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location has beaten Minecraft to the top of the US App Store download charts.

Minecraft has been a regular at the top spot of the paid download charts in the country since launching in 2011. Sister Location was only released on January 3rd 2017 and has held the top spot from January 6th through to January 8th.

It is also not particularly surprising that a Five Nights at Freddy's game would top the chart eventually. While both are paid titles, FNAF is cheaper and currently holds novelty value due to its recent release.

Terrifying

The Five Nights at Freddy's franchise sees players watching CCTV cameras in a haunted restaurant. It is filled with jump scares and horror elements popular with YouTube viewers.

Warner Brothers is developing a movie based on the series. Poltergeist reboot director Gil Kenan is currently attached to the film as director and co-writer.
