Last week saw two notable new releases on Nintendo platforms in the UK, with Luigi's Mansion 2 — known as Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon in some regions — hitting 3DS, and LEGO City Undercover landing on Wii U.

Luigi's ghost-filled adventure enjoyed the best performance of the two, coming in at 5th place in the UK's all-format software chart, an excellent result for the handheld exclusive. TT Fusion's LEGO City Undercover didn't hit those heights, and it didn't match the dual platform release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate's placing in 7th last week; Chase McCain's investigation made its chart debut in 12th place.

As for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on 3DS and Wii U, it saw a dramatic fall from its top ten debut, just barely hanging onto the top 40 in 39th place.

The Year of Luigi is off to a pretty good start in the UK, though the Wii U's recent big-hitters have perhaps had a fairly modest impact; with that said Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate did contribute to a Wii U hardware sales increase of 125% last week. Let us know what you think of these results in the comments below.
