Chase Begins Banner

With the start of the week comes the UK software chart, and once again there's some positive news for 3DS titles. On the Wii U front little has changed, with no exclusives appearing in the top 40 but, potentially, some contributions to multi-platform success stories such as Injustice: Gods Among Us.

The headline new entry this week is LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins making its debut in 8th place; the prequel has out-performed LEGO City Undercover on Wii U, which secured 12th position before tumbling out of the top 40. The 3DS title does have the benefit of a far more established userbase, of course, and Nintendo may be hoping that fans of the handheld entry will become naturally curious about the Wii U release.

Luigi's Mansion 2 continued its good run, meanwhile, hanging on in 10th place to continue spooking rivals; it's a decent result when considering that there are four new entries in the top 10. Fire Emblem: Awakening, meanwhile, has shown decent momentum by coming in at 13th place, after it impressively seized third spot on its debut.

Some reasonable UK results for these 3DS exclusives, while we don't expect any Wii U exclusives to raid the top 40 in the near future; we await new releases. Did you pick up The Chase Begins on 3DS when it launched last week, and are you happy with your purchase so far?
