Last week there was news of a decent start in the UK for New Super Mario Bros. 2, which came into the all-format charts in second place behind the multi-platform Square Enix title Sleeping Dogs. This week has Mario's latest drop one place to third, behind Sleeping Dogs at number one and new entry Darksiders II. There was a 25% drop in sales since launch week, but it's the only single-platform title in the top 10, which is a solid achievement.
Results for other Nintendo-based titles are rather mixed, with all established entries falling away. Mario & Sonic at the London Olympic Games understandably drops to 8th place, while evergreen 3DS titles Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land fall to 19th and 32nd, respectively. The ever-present Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo on DS resides in 27th place.
Quiet away from the top, but Mario's latest is still going strong in the UK.
