There are four new entries in the top 40 this week but none of them have been able to tackle FIFA Street from the top spot.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – Capcom’s first western-developed Resident Evil – leaps in at #2. That’s followed by Mass Effect 3, FIFA 12, SSX and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. At #7 it’s new release Kid Icarus: Uprising with Battlefield 3, F1 2011 and Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics rounding off the top 10.

Shogun 2: Total War Fall of the Samurai is the next highest entry at #17 while Ninja Gaiden 3 enters at #19. Reviews of Ninja Gaiden 3 have been mixed – everything from 3/10 to 8/10. From what we’ve played so far it doesn’t really deserve to chart at all. It looks and feels distinctly low budget.

The well received Armored Core V doesn’t make the PlayStation 3 chart but it does make an appearance in the Xbox 360 chart at #30.

That’s better than what Microsoft’s Kinect Rush: A Disney-Pixar Adventure managed, which limps in at #38 also in the Xbox 360 chart.

    Good to see Kid Icarus penetrating the top ten. I wonder if it’ll become one of Nintendo’s evergreen titles? They’ve certainly been advertising it enough from what I’ve seen.

    The evergreen titles tend to be a bit more casual – Wii Fit, Tetris, Wii Music, Nintendogs, etc – but it might do well on word of mouth.

    Time will tell, I guess. It’s not like we have a shortage of great 3DS games around at the moment.

    Let’s hope it does well enough to spawn a Wii-U outing.
