We love that smile, Pikachu

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.
