The recent launch of Final Fantasy Explorers brought respectable early sales in the UK, in which its debut secured 11th place in the all-format charts and number one in the 3DS-only equivalents.

Its second week hasn't been quite so successful, however, showing that the UK audience for the title has been keen but is, ultimately, small. Explorers dropped out of the all-format top 40 in its second week and a look at the 3DS chart shows why; it's tumbled down to 12th place in the 3DS chart, a hefty drop after being number one just a week previous.

There's a clear leader on both Wii U and 3DS in the UK, however, with LEGO Marvel's Avengers top of both system's individual charts. Rival home console versions are still selling better than the Wii U version, though the Nintendo system's entry has nabbed 40th in the single-format charts, making it the only game on a big N system to make it in that top 40.

One final notable point relates to The Legend of Legacy - in its debut week it secured 7th place in the 3DS single-format chart.

Not a pleasing set of results for Square Enix in the UK, and next week we'll see how Project X Zone 2, in particular, performs for Bandai Namco.
