WarioWare Gold

UK chart data is now in for the week ending 18th January, revealing that the good old 3DS has had a pretty cracking week in the country.

The biggest talking point here is WarioWare Gold, which has managed to climb all the way up to fifth position out of absolutely nowhere. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the game was apparently in 827th place the week before so that's quite the jump.

Three Yo-Kai Watch 3DS games also find themselves in 8th, 12th and 13th, and Metroid Prime: Federation Force is at 26th, while Switch newcomer Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore debuts in 17th place. The reason for this sudden, strange success for 3DS titles is all thanks to Argos, a UK retailer which heavily slashed the prices of the games mentioned above last week.

Here's a look at this week's top ten all formats chart:
