Last week Nintendo of Europe released six more Wii U titles as part of the Nintendo Selects range, dropping their price to €24.99/ £19.99 in stores and on the eShop. It seems the new price ranges have worked nicely in stores, with three of the titles making their way into the UK all-format top 40.

New Super Mario Bros. U + New Super Luigi U is leading the way, showing that a lot of 2D platforming at a budget price can do the trick - it made its début in 18th place. Next up was The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD in 25th place, while Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze secured 39th place. There was a fourth Wii U title in the top 40, too, with Pokkén Tournament in 35th place, down from 27th.

Only one 3DS title has made it into the all-format top 40, and that's Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer in 36th place.

A good week for the Nintendo Selects range, in any case. Beyond the three leaders that made the all-format top 40 we had LEGO City: Undercover which secured 7th in the Wii U chart, and Wii Party U down in 16th for the console. Nintendo Land didn't make the Wii U top 20, but that's unsurprising as the majority of players in Europe likely had it for free with their system.

The results next week will include the launch performance of Star Fox Zero, and it'll be interesting to see how well it does.
