With so many releases out last week it would have been a miracle if Homefront managed to hold onto the top spot. It’s now at #3, making way for Crysis 2 at #1 and the apparently better than expected LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars at #2.

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition is the best selling 3DS title entering the chart at #4. That’s followed by Pilotwings Resort at #6, the review-shy Rayman 3D at #9, Super Monkey Ball 3D at #14, Ridge Racer 3D at #15 and Nintendogs + Cats at #20.

Ghost Reckon: Shadow Wars goes in at #34 selling better than Splinter Cell 3D did which is in at #39. I am surprised that Ridge Racer 3D didn’t chart higher – reviews have been good and it’s a very well established brand. At least it sold better than Asphalt 3D did, which didn’t make the top 40.

The Sims 3 – which previewed badly – did make it into the 3DS single format chart though.

    Feels odd that Street Fighter is the most popular game, considering Nintendo-published titles have come out on top for every previous Nintendo hardware release.

    The state of 3DS releases on Metacritic is kind of depressing. Only three of them are pulling more than 75, and none of those are Nintendo titles. Not perhaps the best launch line-up, but Ridge Racer 3D is enjoyable, and I’m sure Street Fighter is pretty great.
