Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity Is Super Effective in UK Charts
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Another strong 3DS debut
In recent weeks there's been consistently good news for the 3DS in the UK, with titles occupying the top 10 of the all-format charts. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity continues that good form, coming in at number four in its first week.
According to UKIE, this is the third best debut week performance for the spin-off franchise, placing it in the middle of the DS and Game Boy Advance releases of past years. One 3DS title entering the top 10 is offset by two departing, though Luigi's Mansion 2 and LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins are still doing well in 12th and 13th places respectively. Fire Emblem: Awakening deserves a pat on the back, too, as after dropping off in the last two weeks it's still hanging on in the top 40, occupying 34th place.
There's still nothing to tell in terms of Wii U exclusives, as we await the steady influx of the second half of the year. It may be worth watching LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, however, as the multi-platform release is still occupying 14th place; with the Wii U entry arriving this week, we'll see whether there's a bump in its sales.
