Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and LEGO City 3DS Stand Their Ground in UK Top 10

Posted by Martin Watts

Fire Emblem: Awakening still present but on its way out

The latest UK Video Games Charts by UKIE for last week show that Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins are still holding their own in the top 10 of the all-format results.

Chase McCain's prequel adventure for 3DS finds itself at number eight for the third week in a row, while Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon makes an ever so subtle drop from rank nine to ten. Both games have only seen a relatively small drop in sales compared to the previous week (-24% for LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins and -12% for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon), which suggests that they're both selling at a steady pace.

Meanwhile Fire Emblem: Awakening, which debuted in third position, has dropped even further down the charts, moving from 24th last week to only 35th this week. Given that it is something of a niche title, it's very possible that it will fall out of the charts by next week.

Dead Island: Riptide holds the number one spot for its third consecutive week; BioShock Infinite is the only other title to have matched this feat this year. Otherwise, Call of Duty: Black Ops II makes a surprising climb to number two, as a result of recent retailer price promotions. It's quite possible that UK supermarket ASDA's recent Wii U promotion had at least some impact on this.

I ordered Luigi 2 and FE: Awakening. I hope they are as great as people say they are.

I still believe Nintendo made a mistake by making Luigi's Mansion 2 a 3DS exclusive. They should have ported the game to Wii U. They can still port it but it won't sell nearly as much as it should because most people played the game on 3DS already.

I would blame Fire Emblem's lack of presence of the charts down to the lack of stock that seems to be available in stores, I had a very hard time getting ahold of a physical copy and in the end settled for a digital download.

Fire Emblem isn't a big name so I think it did fantastically well to chart so high originally. I imagine Nintendo will be quite pleased with it's figures.

@WiiURockz Well, by that standard it's a mistake to make Pikmin 3 a Wii U exclusive. It would be nice to see both on both platforms with cross-play like MH3U, but it wouldn't appear that's Nintendo's style.

Could you print the actual top 10 chart, it would be nice to see the other games in the top 10 too.

Luigi still showing some strong legs despite his constant shivering/shaking.
I'm more surprised at The Chase Begins still performing positively.

Good stuff.
