This week’s UK chart has an unexpected #1 – not Nintendo’s Pikmin 3, but Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.

We assume that’s down to a combination of the game’s ‘pocket money’ price tag and the kids currently being off school.

The long awaited Wii U-exclusive Pikmin 3 pops in at #2 – a very respectable placing, especially when you consider that Pikmin 2 on GameCube debuted at a lowly #32 back in 2004.

The Last of Us, Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. finish off the top five.

New Super Luigi U leaps in at #13 – another decent placing that Nintendo must be proud of.

Then during its second week of release, The Smurfs 2 enters at #25. With the movie yet to be released there’s a chance it could climb higher still, despite not being very good.
