Even cheaply it's struggled to sell

Plumbing collection Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition just launched in the UK and had an underwhelming first weekend of sales, missing the top 20 altogether and landing at number 22.

Simian platformer Donkey Kong Country Returns had a stronger showing, a new entry at number 13 behind strong climber Mario Kart Wii. Whether games purchased with bananas are included is not currently known.

This Friday sees the launch of the last high-profile Nintendo game before Christmas in the form of Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, so we'll keep a beady eye on the charts to see how it performs.
