Three big name new releases were competing for peopleâ€™s payday money last week, and even with some mediocre reviews behind it Square-Enix’s Thief has managed to steal the top spot, pushing LEGO The Movie Videogame down to #2.
FIFA 14 is at #3 while the better than expected Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare cuts in at #4.
Konami’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 enters at #10.
Two other new entries also lie within the top 40 – Tales of Symphonia: Chronicles makes its mark at a surprisingly high #13. Thatâ€™s not bad going at all.
Fellow RPG Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, incidentally, now sits at #23 – down 12 places.
That other new arrival? Thatâ€™s the 3DS’s Senran Kagura Burst at #38. PQubeâ€™s titles rarely enter the top 40 at all, so weâ€™d imagine that they may actually be pretty pleased with that. Itâ€™s also #4 in the 3DS chart, clocking in above the likes of Mario Party: Island Tour and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
