LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has bagged its fifth consecutive no.1, putting it neck-and-neck with current LEGO record holder LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

There’s one more chart to go until No Man’s Sky launches, meaning The Force Awakens may very well go on to become a LEGO record breaker.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End rises to #2 thanks to retailer price drops, GTA V moves up to #3, FIFA 16 falls to #4 and then at #5 it’s the ever-popular Overwatch.

DOOM dropped one position to #6, Rocket League rose to #7, Black Ops III hangs around at #8 while Minecraft: Xbox Edition creeps up to #9.

At #10 it’s a re-entry – Ratchet & Clank, up all the way from #33.

Pokémon Alpha Sapphire is another notable riser, going from #24 to #11. As for other Pokémon games in the top 40, Omega Ruby is at #18, Pokémon X at #25 and Pokémon Y at #29.

The 3DS’s Monster Hunter Generations hasn’t had quite as much luck, falling from #9 to #22. Yo-Kai Watch is still clinging in there, though, at #40 for a second week running.

The Black Friday sales didn’t just cause havoc at the supermarkets. They’ve managed to send the UK chart into a tizzy too.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare retakes the top spot, but this wasn’t down to people rushing out to buy it alongside a shiny new PS4 or Xbox One. 67% of sales last week were in fact for the heavily discounted last-gen versions.

Last week’s #1 – GTA V – falls to #3, outsold by FIFA 15 by 1,500 copies. That’s up from #4 to #2.

Then we have Far Cry 4 at #4 and Assassin’s Creed: Unity at #5.

At #6 and #7 there are two new entries – Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. Chart-Track reports that combined sales would have made Nintendo’s latest #3 in the chart. Incidentally, Ruby managed to outsell Sapphire by 2,400 copies.

At #8 it’s one of the biggest risers in recent memory – Sony’s DriveClub, up all the way from #33. That’ll be down to reduced PS4 DriveClub bundles, then. Sales were up an absurd 999%.

Sales of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag significantly increased as well, helping it rise from #18 to #9. It even outperformed Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, this week at #22.

Good old Minecraft: Xbox Edition finishes off this week’s UK top ten.

Leaving the top ten this week are Dragon Age: Inquisition (falling from #5 to #16), WWE 2K15 (7# to #20) and Halo: The Master Chief Collection (#10 to #27).

Despite having a different name to its 3DS counterpart, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U isn’t classed as a new release. Odd, we know. The critically acclaimed Wii U version propels Nintendo’s all-star brawler back up from #27 to respectable enough #13.

LittleBigPlanet 3 is the next highest new entry, in at #18.

Over in the single format charts meanwhile LitleBigPlanet: Marvel Superhero Edition made #8 in the PS Vita chart while Adventure Time: Secret of The Nameless Kingdom made #19 and #28 in the 3DS and Xbox 360 charts respectively.

This week belongs to Nintendo. Not only do we have the biggest Wii U launch of the year – in the form of Super Smash Bros. – but also the eagerly anticipated Pokémon Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby on 3DS.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is due on the eShop this Friday, but at £49.99 you’d be better off looking online as it can easily be found for around £35. The digital version of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby is rather steep as well, priced at £39.99. Guess Nintendo really didn’t want to undercut bricks and mortar stores on these two titles. Well, three titles.

Other retail releases heading to the eShop this week include Little Orbit’s The Penguins of Madagascar (£34.99 Wii U/£24.99 3DS) and Adventure Time: The Secret of the Nameless Kingdom (£24.99 3DS – there’s no Wii U version, oddly), Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth (£34.99) and Horse Vet 3D (£24.99).

IttleDew

As for download-only titles there’s the much loved Thomas Was Alone (£6.99), delightfully retro RPG Pier Solar and the Great Architects (£11.99), the 16-bit Zelda flavoured Ittle Dew (£8.99) and a conversion of PC platformer Shiny The Firefly (£6.29 until 31st Dec). A pretty decent selection, all told.

This week’s Virtual Console offerings may pique your interest too. Wii U owners get Capcom’s SNES RPG Breath of Fire (£5.49) while cult puzzler Pokémon Puzzle Challenge (£4.49) heads to 3DS VC.

The 3DS’s line-up of new arrivals is nowhere near as exciting as that for the Wii U. Talking Phrasebook – 7 Languages (£4.49) and My First Songs (£4.49) anybody? Thought not. Castle Conqueror EX (£3.49) might be worth a look though.
