According to UKIE's video games chart information for last week, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask has debuted in seventh place in the UK. The game, which is the fifth title in the beloved Professor Layton series, was released last Friday (26th October) in Europe, and has been warmly received by critics.
While seventh place may not seem particularly high, it's worth noting that this latest release has matched the first-week performance of its predecessor, Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call, which also reached the same position last November. When you also take into account that this game is exclusive to the 3DS—which has a significantly smaller install base than the DS—it's a pretty impressive achievement.
Meanwhile, EA's Medal of Honor: Warfighter debuted in first place, knocking FIFA 13 down to second after four weeks at the top. Forza Horizon was the highest-ranking system exclusive, entering the chart in third place.
