Last weekâ€™s trio of big name releases – Evolve, Zelda: Majoraâ€™s Mask and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate – are off to a monstrously good start.
Itâ€™s 2Kâ€™s Evolve that takes the top spot in the UK all-formats top 40. Chart-Track reports that the Xbox One version shifted the most copies, albeit by fewer than 400 units over the PS4 version.
The individual chart tells a slightly different story. Here itâ€™s Zelda: Majoraâ€™s Mask on 3DS that has taken the top spot. For those currently scratching their head, this means that Majoraâ€™s Mask outsold the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Evolve. Or to iterate, it was the biggest selling single format title of the week.
Whatâ€™s exceptionally noteworthy about this is that Evolve launched on Tuesday whereas Majoraâ€™s Mask received a standard Friday release.
The release of the New Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL meanwhile gave a 57% boost to last weekâ€™s hardware sales.
Capcomâ€™s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate settles for #4 in the all-format chart, with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare – last weekâ€™s chart topper – now at #3.
GTA V finishes off the UKâ€™s top five.
There were no other new arrivals, or even re-entries, in the top 40.
