Wii Party Leads Nintendo Chart Climb

This just in: Nintendo advertising campaign works

Never let it be said that teaming a completely harmless boyband with a family-friendly video game doesn't work. Kiddie favourite boppers JLS have clearly been doing sterling work in promoting Wii Party, as the game leaps six places to number four in the UK chart.

With the exception of re-entries, the entire top 40 saw just five titles move up the charts, all of them Nintendo-exclusive titles: Wii Party, Wii Sports Resort, New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart DS.

The highest new entry for a Nintendo platform was, unsurprisingly, Ubisoft's dancing juggernaut sequel Just Dance 2, only outsold by FIFA 11 and controversial – and beardy – shooter Medal of Honor.
