UK chart sees Nintendo titles on the rise

With no new entries and GTA V holding the top spot for a second week running, this week’s UK chart isn’t exactly a thrilling one.

The fact that a handful of Nintendo titles have moved up the ranks hasn’t escaped us, however. We put this down to last week’s impressively strong Nintendo Direct.

In the individual format chart Mario Kart 8 shifts back into the top 20 (albeit at #20) while fellow pack-in Nintendo Land reappears at #25. The Wii U iteration of Super Smash Bros. rises from #32 to #27 in the same chart.

And after almost vanishing last week, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker crawls back up to #38.

On top of all this, the original Disney Infinity saw a sales boost due to sizeable discounts. That’s back at #33 in the UK top 40 and re-enters at #5 in the Wii U chart.

As for the UK’s top ten, it’s pretty much unchanged from last week. Chart topper GTA V is followed by FIFA 15, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4 and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition to form the top five.

Next week’s chart should be a touch more interesting – Saints Row IV Re-elected & Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell is out this Friday, along with a few other new releases.
