Nintendo’s 3DS tag-team climbs the chart

The Last of Us celebrates a deserved 5th week on top of the UK top 40 this week.

Nintendo has a reason for celebration too – Animal Crossing: New Leaf and new entry Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. are at #2 and #3 respectively. Now that’s a dream team.

FIFA 13 and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition finish off the top five.

There’s a slight shuffle elsewhere in the top 10 – Deadpool is down from #9 to #16 while the dismal Aliens: Colonial Marines is up from #22 to #10. Surely everybody must be aware how poor it is by now?

Speaking of poor games, Ride to Hell: Retribution is still hanging around at #37. Go away, smelly.

Namco-Bandai’s Project X Zone graced the chart at a respectable #18 last week but has seemingly now vanished into the Twilight zone. Stock shortages could be to blame – we haven’t spotted a single copy on the high street yet.

A late arrival of MotoGP 13 at #38 is the only occurrence of note.

Don’t be surprised if The Last of Us manages a 6th week at #1 – The Smurfs 2 and Dynasty Warriors 8 are the only new games arriving at retail.

  • the 3DS has one very good games library which is great considering most people considered it a failure a few years ago and that the Vita would dominate everything. now it’s the reverse. if only Nintendo do the same thing to the Wii U because i really want it to succeed but the news articles on the internet have all been negative can’t fairly judge a new home console in it’s first year.

  • After Nintendo’s E3 line-up, I think a lot of people are now willing to give the Wii U past this Xmas to show its full colours.

    Pikmin 3 is apparently sold out in Japan and no.1 in the chart, so that’s a good sign.
