The chart gets saved by Xenoblade

Even with stock shortages due to unforeseen demand, Xenoblade Chronicles has managed to jump into the chart at a respectable #7. If Nintendo had produced enough copies to go around it would have no doubt charted even higher than that.

Xenoblade isn’t the only boon for Nintendo this week – Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is back in the top 10 ten, up from #13 to #4.

Zumba Fitness holds onto #1, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean at #2 and Cars 2 at #3. Just Dance 2: Extra Songs, Call of Juarez: The Cartel and The Sims 3 have all left the top 10 this week.

In the single formats 2D brawler Arcana Heart 3 makes #19 in the PlayStation 3 chart and #26 in the Xbox 360 chart. Some of the online retailers have cut it down to £18 already which presumably helped it chart higher than expected.
