The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is the first of what Nintendo hopes will be a few key releases for Wii U in the next few months. The remaster of the previously successful Wii launch title (which also landed late on GameCube), it's also responsible for kickstarting the year's 30th Anniversary celebrations for its franchise.

Pleasingly the UK charts bring positive sales results, with the Tantalus Media-developed port grabbing second place in the all-format chart behind Far Cry Primal, but actually taking the lead and seizing first place in the single-format results. That's particularly impressive in light of the relatively small Wii U userbase in the UK.

It was a decent week for Pokemon, too. Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon continues its steady drop down the all-format chart from 15th to 22nd, but that's still a slower decline than various other major 3DS releases in recent times. There are also chart returns for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, with the latter entering the all-format charts in 32nd and the former in 37th place. Those results mean that Pokemon titles account for the top three in the 3DS-only chart.

Finally, as the random entry of the week - presumably helped by promotions - we have Just Dance 2016 for the last-gen Wii breaking back into the single-format top 40 in 35th place.

An excellent result in the end for Twilight Princess HD. Were you one of the Wii U owners to jump in with a launch weekend purchase of the remaster?
