Pandora's Tower Sneaks into UK Software Chart

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

A lot of climbing to do

There was one high profile retail release on Nintendo systems last week, with Pandora’s Tower arriving on Wii. Unlike Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure, which failed to break into the software top 40 in its debut week and missed out again this week, the final title in the so-called 'Operation Rainfall Trilogy' has managed to hook onto 38th place in the charts.

There were some respectable sales for titles on the Nintendo platforms, with Wii and 3DS title Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games coming in with a solid finish of ninth, while Mario Party 9 claimed 18th position.

For those specifically interested in the fortunes of 3DS games, three big-hitters have made the charts this week. Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land placed 23rd and 32nd respectively, while the brilliant Kid Icarus: Uprising got one ahead of Pandora's Tower in 37th place.

Perhaps a slightly disappointing start for Pandora's Tower, while once again it's proven that any game with Mario in its title has a decent chance in the charts.

No surprise there really.
Good effort for it to make the top 40 at least, I don't expect too many people to end up with the game.
I got it at launch here in Australia though.
And it's a shame to see Kid Icarus: Uprising so low down on the list, as it's truly an amazing game and anyone who doesn't buy it is missing out.

I thing this game isn't real RPG but it's like old good PRINCE OF PERSIA from MS-DOS - run for time and jumps and sword attacks and sometimes some elixir of life, but still it's very good game

At least it got into the top 40 but it would've been awesome if this and The last story got into the top 10 in their first week like XBC did. Its a shame that Rhythm thief never even got into the top 40 as its a great game!
