Wii Party is likely to be one of Nintendo's sleeper hits this Christmas, its deadly combination of Mii characters and a bundled Wii Remote all-but assuring it'll sell shedloads in the run-up to the Yuletide season.

Its first weekend on sale in the UK has seen the game take a respectable 10th position on the charts, just behind perennial groover Just Dance.

With Nintendo's Christmas marketing campaign having kicked off recently with a series of adverts featuring chromatically co-ordinated boyband JLS we'll soon see if the game can rise up the charts like the teen favourites.
