Swinging when you’re winning

Out of the five or so new releases that last week gave us, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze has managed to chart the highest, entering at a respectable #9.

Rayman Legends leaps back up from #33 to #10 due to the belated Xbox One and PlayStation 4 conversions, while Rambo: The Video Game makes its mark at #21.

Despite having a sizeable cult following, EDF 2025 failed to make the top 40.

New PS Vita releases YS: Memories of Celceta and Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God failed to enter too, but the former did make #1 in the PS Vita chart.

Even though PS Vita retail releases are thin on the ground, that does surprise us slightly, especially with The LEGO Movie Videogame performing incredibly well elsewhere in chart land.

Traveller’s Tales’ blockbuster is the UK’s #1 for a second week running, with sales up 7%. Indeed, LEGO fever has struck the top 40 – no less than nine LEGO games are present this week, four of which have re-entered. It’s a right old bloc party.

FIFA 14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4 and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes round off the top five.

Also of note: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has left the top 10 after just one week, falling from #3 to #11. Will it manage to return? With a price cut, perhaps.
