The UK chart results are in, and they bring some positive news for Nintendo UK and also Capcom, with the quiet Summer months not doing too much harm to 3DS releases in particular.
Monster Hunter Generations, which had an impressive debut in third place, secures 9th in its second week in the all-format charts, which is actually 4th place in the single-format results. Though it didn't have new releases to contend with last week, that's still decent going despite a 66% drop from week one sales.
Another big story this week is with Pokémon, as 3DS entries in the series have benefitted from that first full week since Pokémon GO officially arrived in the UK. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire have re-entered the all-format top 40 in 17th and 24th places respectively, while Pokémon Y finds itself in 29th place. Perhaps a number of GO fans are keen to try out the main games while setting off on Holiday.
The past week also benefitted two more evergreen 3DS releases, with New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Tomodachi Life in 27th and 28th respectively, with the former re-entering the top 40 to make a splash.
Finally, the upcoming Rio Olympics continue to help Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, with the Wii U version contributing the most in what's deemed a dual release by Chart-Track; both entries combined moved up six places to 18th in the all-format results. Minecraft: Wii U Edition is also still in the all-format top 40 in 35th place, while Yo-kai Watch on 3DS takes the final chart spot.
Overall, last week was easily one of the best that Nintendo UK and related third-parties have had in the UK charts for some time. Though only one exclusive is still in the top 10, as you can see a good number of other titles are currently hanging out in the top 40 - a welcome return to some form in the country.
Should Mario, Sonic and friends not be banned from the Olympics for blatantly using performance enhancers? No wonder the Russians thought they could get away with it.
Get more sleep then.
Where's the list?
Looks like 3DS got a nice little hardware boost in the UK with the new entries in top 40
@MGray I always look on GoNintendo for the charts. They have all the individual ones at your fingertips.
Yeh. I love the community here, but the articles are usually a little lackluster..
@SLIGEACH_EIRE I hear the Russians managed to synthesize the Starmans found in Mario games, but without the music and the rainbows.
@BensonUii You bore me with your lies.
I do wonder what Go's impact will be on Sun & Moon. It would hvae also been smart to do 3DS/2DS pack-ins with either X/Y or Omega/Alpha, & reduce the price of those games.
@BensonUii - Yeah, feels like he's camping out here to be first on every article. A little strange...
How dare you accuse Benson of lying. I have firsthand proof. Not only are you desperate for a first comment like a grade schooler you lie about and then accuse others of lying when they tell the truth.
@BensonUii I'm just glad everyone can see now what he does
waits for excuse post
I don't do it all the time liars. And so what if I do little children? Have another cry why don't ye. You've repeatedly brought it up. Who the hell cares? And yes you are a liar @BensonUii. You just did it again. "he always post one word every time to secure the top spot." Pathetic troll! I can edit my posts as much as I like and I'll likely edit this comment too. "first comments that gets edited into full-blown nonsense later."
Another lie from the liar.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE But doing it sometimes, is still not a thing to be Proud of. Point is, it's not about HOW MANY TIMES you do it, it's about the Fact that you DO, do it.
@SLIGEACH_EIRE Well, what did I say? I just knew there would be an excuse. People are annoyed because you keep doing it, and that, most of the time, for no real reason; so what if you get the first post?
It doesn't personally bother me, but it's something that clearly others aren't happy with. Also the extreme negativity in the majority (not all; read this carefully - NOT EVERY POST) probably doesn't help; then again, none of this particularly bothers me personally, but is probably why it bothers others.
@Takerkaneanite6 So? What a sad little tattle tale and stalker @BensonUii is. And because he prattles on about it, well what do you think will happen? I think I'll use this image in future seeing as he talked about an imaginary crown earlier. I'll give you something to complain about you sad little child.
And has nobody noticed how he's second to comment in a lot of stories but then has a whinge? I love it that it annoys him because he's a crap stirring troll.
From now on, any time he posts first on an article, I would recommend someone post these pics immediately after.
If he wants attention that bad, I say give it to him. For all to see
@SLIGEACH_EIRE This just shows that you didn't get the Point. Understand the Points that they are making, before arguing.
Like I said, doing it Sometimes, rather than all the time, isn't something to be Proud of. Understand, don't Assume.
I'm amazed the mods don't do anything about this clown. :/
@JaxonH Sad! Is this your revenge for TMS #FE? Your screengrabs says more about you than it does about me and shows you've got an agenda.
@Takerkaneanite6 I take what you're saying but sorry there are a few members on this site that I've no time for.
Revenge? Oh no, I hold no grudges.
This is the fact you called him a liar when he wasn't lying. That doesn't sit well with me.
@JaxonH He is a liar. Who goes around taking screengrabs of a members comments unless they know that they're going to do exactly what you did?
What about his trolling second placed comments like in this thread? I suppose that's fine?
Who cares that I edit my comments? It's not a crime. He's repeatedly brought this up. And I don't always do it but you've purposely picked comments where I have.
People take screenshots to prove that you're spamming, because people know you would lie and deny it. And you did exactly that which only proves it was a wise decision to get proof. Otherwise it'd be your word versus theirs. But now, there is no doubt.
No one cares if you edit comments. That's not the issue. The issue is you spamming incomplete one-word comments that contribute absolutely nothing in a desperate attempt to get first post, which is an immature endeavor in the first place.
It irritates people. If you are that hell bent on having the first post so be it, but I'd advise making sure you post what you mean the first time. No more of this spamming/editing nonsense.
@JaxonH Keep your advice to yourself. You took screengrabs of comments before this thread even existed. I'd already said in other threads that I edit my comments and that I don't do it all the time. How else would you know to take screengrabs? I expect this topic will rear its ugly head in another week or so.
Edit: Oh and I remember typing just "." in a thread a couple of weeks ago and no I didn't edit it. I left it just to make a point.
Oh I didn't take those screencaps. They were given to me by another member. But I will not hesitate to do so myself in the future if need be.
And you are free to ignore my advice, by all means, but don't say you weren't given fair warning.
I saw the title for this article and was hoping Pokken Tournament had seen a resurgence. Picked it up last week finally, and as a fan of fighting games I think it's great.
I can't believe I read all of that. I didn't really care until the liar defended himself, I dont care about the first comment, but if you go to such lengths to ensure that you are first then you really must live a sad existence
@BensonUii @Takerkaneanite6 @SLIGEACH_EIRE It's time to take a chill pill and knock it off.
@Lzeon Yeah, Hakuna Matata, nobody gives a Donald Duck, and let's get back to the games.
