UK top ten sees two new arrivals, while 3DS Pokemon makes a timely re-entry

Wii U revamp The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD has entered the UK top 40 at #2. The individual format chart shows an even bigger reason for Nintendo to celebrate – it’s #1 here, outselling the PS4 and Xbox One iterations of Far Cry Primal.

Obviously, it wasn’t able to better combined sales – Primal is still #1 in the all-formats chart.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 – which we reviewed over the weekend – drops to #3 while Black Ops III holds onto #4. Then at #5 it’s FIFA 16.

LEGO Marvel’s Avengers remains at #6, GTA V drops to #7, new arrival Heavy Rain & Beyond: Two Souls Collection made #8 while positions #9 and #10 are held by Rainbow Six: Siege and Forza 6 respectively.

Star Wars Battlefront, Street Fighter V and Fallout 4 say farewell to the top ten this week.

Mortal Kombat XL was the only other new arrival, entering at #21.

As for re-entries, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby bounce back at #32 and #37. This is likely down to buzz surrounding Pokemon’s 20th anniversary.

The somewhat newer Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon is still in the top 40 too, currently at #22.

It’s not all good news for Nintendo though – after arriving at #12 last Monday, Bravely Second: End Layer departs the top 40 after just one week.
