Entering at a very respectable #7, Bayonetta 2 charted the highest out of last week’s bumper bounty of new releases. The fact that Nintendo Land is back in the top 40 suggests that the Wii U-exclusive managed to shift a few more consoles for Nintendo. Mario Kart 8 however stayed put at #30.
Civilization: Beyond Earth made #18, Just Dance 2015 entered at #19 – with the Wii version proving the most popular – and then at #32 Singstar: Ultimate Party showed its face. It’s worth pointing out though that a free downloadable version of Singstar is available on PSN.
First-person shooter Shadow Warrior failed to make the top 40, as did the Xbox-exclusive Fantasia: Music Evolved. Fantasia’s no-show prompted us to double-check the release date. It appears that it was indeed released on Friday but very few retailers are stocking it. It doesn’t even appear in the Xbox 360 top 40, alarmingly.
Back to the top 40 – it’s FIFA 15 that’s no.1, making it five weeks in a row. At #2 all the way up from #9 it’s Minecraft: PlayStation Edition which is followed by The Evil Within, Destiny and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor to form the UK’s top five.
