Our faith in the gaming industry has been restored slightly today. Namco’s PlayStation 3-exclusive RPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is the new UK number one.
Last week’s #1 was Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which drops to #3. FIFA 13 remains at #2. At #4 it’s Far Cry 3 and at #5 it’s a new entry – Hitman Trilogy HD.
Hitman Absolution is currently at #9, so it’s certainly a good week for both IO Interactive and Square-Enix.
DmC: Devil May Cry has left the top ten this week, falling from #4 to #11. A price cut could very well see Dante re-enter the top ten though.
There are no other new releases in the top 40, but we do spy Omerta: City of Gangsters entering the Xbox 360 chart at #26, and Wreck It Ralph in the DS chart at #31. No doubt the Wii and 3DS versions will make an impact when the movie is finally released in the UK.
