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.
