A respectable start

The UK charts can be a tough place for Nintendo system exclusives in recent times, but Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy has secured a reasonable 19th place in the UK all-format charts in its first week. While that may not sound like something to celebrate, we should consider that the excellent Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure failed to chart, missing the top 40 in its debut week back in April.

Other 3DS titles have experienced mixed fortunes in their debut weeks in the UK charts: Resident Evil Revelations charted at six, Kid Icarus: Uprising came in at number seven, while Mario Tennis Open could only serve up 11th place in its debut.

All of those titles crashed out of the top 40 shortly after release, however, so we'll need to wait and see whether Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy has more staying power.
