Put those maracas away - this is no time to celebrate

Funky Parisian 3DS game Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure has failed to land a foothold in the UK Top 40 charts in its first week.

Price cuts and Easter promotions led to increased sales of older titles, which may have contributed to keeping Raphael's groove on the down low. Top of the charts was the much-hyped Kinect Star Wars, while the highest placed Nintendo-only title was SEGA's mascot mash-up Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games at number 8. Nintendo's Mario Party 9 kept the multiplayer gaming going in 14th place.

Kid Icarus: Uprising fell to 39th place in the all-formats chart.
