Another successful week for the Nintendo 3DS as Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D hits the UK chart at number 5. In fact, the popular franchise has rolled in at a much higher position than its Wii counterpart – back in 2010, the title debuted at number 13, and just crept into the top 10 to sit pretty at number 7 two weeks after its initial launch. And with the adverts coming in thick and fast for DK and Diddy, we might see history repeating itself and find the title climbing up the charts once again.
Taking the lead at the top of the chart this week is none other than newly released Resident Evil: Revelations. Though it’s not a Wii U exclusive, it sees the previous Nintendo 3DS title make headway onto the Wii U, which can only be a good thing. Last week’s number four Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity slips down the list to number 13, while Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins continue to rival each other in number 9 and 10.
