One of the treats that Monday brings is the UK software chart, which in recent times has brought some cheer for Nintendo fans. This week is little different, as Pokémon X and Pokémon Y continue in the top ten in fifth and sixth places respectively; X still holds the upper hand over Y. They've both dropped one place due to the release of Batman: Arkham Origins, though the Wii U version has made no contribution due to its rather annoying delay in Europe on Nintendo's system.

Also in the top ten we have Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed, the latest title in the hugely popular children's series on the DS and 3DS, while Animal Crossing: New Leaf is still holding steady in 19th place. The two versions of Sonic Lost World secure 20th place after its début in 11th, and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD continues its steady loss of puff in 28th position.

These results don't account for eShop sales, of course, so the absence of Wii Party U on the platform in the UK (and Europe) — combined with the Wii MotionPlus bundle — should give the mini-game collection its best possible chance of making an impact on the charts.
