This week’s UK chart details are in, and it’s good news for the life simulation game Animal Crossing: New Leaf as it remains in the all-formats top 5, taking the number 4 hotspot just behind The Last of Us, Minecraft and FIFA 13. Meanwhile Luigi’s Mansion 2 has had an incredible run for the Nintendo 3DS and has remarkable staying power at number 19, just inside the top 20.
Project X Zone by Namco Bandai for the Nintendo 3DS, in its debut week, comes in at number 18 – just above Luigi’s Mansion 2. The crossover tactical RPG was released last week for North America and sold over 85,000 units, so there’s still time for Europe to catch up and creep up the charts.
Other Nintendo 3DS games still hanging around in the top 40 are LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins at 31 and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D placed at 34. But with Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Bros due out later this week, we’re hoping it joins Animal Crossing: New Leaf in the big leagues. You can see this week’s chart here.
