Animal Crossing: New Leaf Catches Enough UK Sales for the Bronze Prize
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
The latest UK chart results are here, and they make nice reading once again for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, as it secures third place after two weeks in second spot. While the number one spot has eluded it due to The Last of Us performing well on PS3, it's nevertheless been an impressive run for the title in the UK market; it should also be noted that the UKIE statistics don't take into account download sales.
Elsewhere in the list a few 3DS exclusives are still battling it out in the top 40, though with a slight loss of momentum. Luigi's Mansion 2 is now in 15th place, UKIE lists Donkey Kong Country Returns in 28th place, but we suspect that it actually means Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D; LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins is the straggler of the top 40 3DS exclusives in 31st place.
In the next few weeks we have Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. on 3DS and Wii U's Pikmin 3 arriving in Europe. The latter's arrival on 26th July will surely be watched closely by Nintendo, as it represents the first major release of a planned Wii U fightback.
