UK Charts: Super Smash Bros Makes Its Debut At Number 7

This week’s UK charts are now in courtesy of GFK Chart-Track. Super Smash Bros for 3DS takes its debut leap into the individual charts and, while it doesn’t come out with a victory, it does face stiff competition from FIFA 15 and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Unfortunately, the brawler title can’t quite knock either of those games into oblivion, but it does manage to creep above three multi-platform titles for a top 10 position, landing at 7 as its debut.

With such tough new competition and multi-platform titles, Tomodachi Life slips to 20, while Fantasy Life takes a nosedive to 22 after its top 10 position last week. For the Wii U, Hyrule Warriors also suffers heavy knock back and withdraws to 25 from 15, while Mario Kart 8 is green-shelled to 28 from 26. Below you’ll find the top 40 individual chart for the UK ending on October 4.

      1. Might be true. Sadly, I haven’t had the time to pick up that game, will probably wait til it drops in price. But as a huge LotR-fan, it looks GOOD!

    1. Pretty much, I’m from th U.K and I completely agree. I downloaded it from the e-shop on Friday. I hate being British sometimes………..x(

    2. Because they like different games than you do. That is kind of sad.
      If there were a lot of Nintendo games in it you will probably saw it as a great gaming community

      Why is that people can not respect other people taste in games ?

      1. Pretty sure it’s because they have the worst taste in gaming and not because they dont have Nin games. I mean, COMON, they have a rehashed-no-effort game in the top 5 from all the systems.

      1. No. It makes it even more valid. All versions of Fifa 15 are in the top 5 of the list. Oh right. You’re a slave to EA. *backs away slowly*

        1. Yeah you better run ;) Isn’t it good that all versions made it? It means that people of all ages are willing to buy the game and are ready to play it. Just be glad that we get Smash Bros 2 weeks before the UK so this time we will be the ones delivering the spoilers B)

    1. I don’t like smah at all and I can say the same thing and replace smah by fifa. people have different taste, no need to insult a country. If you can provide the chart for your country it would be interesting to compare :-)

  1. Hey, don’t tare all of the UK with the same brush! Some of us can’t stand Fifa, myself included. I won’t go near that shit. I bought Fantasy Life and Smash Bros. on release date. Enjoying the hell out of em!

    1. Nintendo is My Blood Reborn

      I hate FIFA, never played it but my brother plays the shit out of it, everyday, nothing else, he has a PS3 but he only plays FIFA, NOTHING ELSE.

      Seriously, I have seen with my own eyes each and every incarnation of FIFA and they all look the same sav for a few little alterations to the soundtrack and menu screen.

        1. Nintendo is My Blood Reborn

          Oh, yeah, fucking compare something from what 1992 to something in 2014?

          C’mon wise guy, show me a major difference from FiFA 2011 to FIFA 14.

          1. So you go from

            “have seen with my own eyes each and every incarnation of FIFA and they all look the same sav for a few little alterations to the soundtrack and menu screen.”


            “show me a major difference from FiFA 2011 to FIFA 14.”


            1. Nintendo is My Blood Reborn

              Yes so? Only morons like you could take anyone so literal, Of course there is a difference from 1990s to 2000s, but can you honestly say, one iteration of FIFA was so revolutionary, that all others are almost completely different from it?

              If you give me the same bullshit that every FIFA game is improved but Pokemon or Mario is a rehash, I will also throw in your face Pokemon Red and Blue compared to Pokemon X and Y.

              For god’s sake, have a bit of pride for the miserable human species you ignorant chimp.

          1. Nintendo is My Blood Reborn

            Oh shut up you Ebola infected Nigerian moron, you will kiss up to anything or kiss anything for friends,

    1. And there’s something wrong with ignorant people like you and anyone else complaining about the English.

      And the English are one part of four that makes up the UK you imbecile.

      1. I get the felling they do like soccer a lot and some sales come from that but i also think that sales come from mainstream… kinda like iPhones or stupid COD.

  2. This is almost as awful as how much America loves the shit out of them NBA games. Watch’s the point of playing a sports game if you can watch the damn thing on TV?

      1. There’s a reason that games are made, TO NOT DO THE ACTUAL THING. That’s why people are fucking buying FIFA dumbass

      1. Yeah, at least there is some form of challenge when playing genres like RPG’s (Final Fantasy, Kingdom hearts, Dragon Quest, ect.) and platformers (Klonoa, Super Mario, Donkey Kong Country, ect.) than playing the likes of a boring and easy sports game.

      2. JTZ from tribe of Judah

        I love those platform games. Banjo Kazooie was the best one before Nintendo let rare go without a fight.

    1. So you can play as your dream star, the guy that you look Upon and what to be. Your question is rather stupid

      1. Coming from a WWE fan that loves the shit out of John Cena, I’d watch watch him fight than just play as him in a video game. I feel the same way about my favorite members of the Chicago Cubs too. It just doesn’t feel as exciting as the real deal and defeats the purpose of sports entertainment.

        1. JTZ from tribe of Judah

          Staying inside could increase your chance of high blood pressure, over weight and diabetes .better go play the real sport if you want to be in shape.

  3. Well FIFA has a huge following and I won’t repeat what I stated several times in this blog. To be honest Smash is not Mario kart and people who believe it will be a bomb and sell million got it all wrong. Now I won’t go again to Uk charts and why such game is popular but some of you guy should look at their own country before criticising the UK.

  4. We dont have a chart… So I have to point on you guys and your countrys.. Nothing personal.. I dont have a choise as an asshole

  5. It’s doing well considering the country it released in. NO GAME can compete with a new Fifa title in the UK.

    Shadow of Mordor is actually a great game.

    They stupidly ALWAYS release their big games in the UK when huge selling games like FIFA which has always been a massive hit in the UK is released multi platform and then people wonder why Nintendo games always do crap in the UK charts?
    They did the same with Super Mario 3d World with the Wii U they released it on the same day as the PS4 launched and then people wonder why a mediocre game like Knack easily outsold it in Europe!
    Nintendo marketing team needs firing and fast!If Nintendo want their games to be massive hits in the UK then they need to release when NO multi platform PS4,PS3 360 and One games are released as there user base totally dwarfs the Wii U and 3ds!

    1. JTZ from tribe of Judah

      Take it further than that, delayed 3Ds version of Smash and release Wii U version first after the so called new year.

  7. Football (soccer for the Americans) is generally huge in the UK and for the rest of Europe.

    Every iteration if Madden makes it into the top 10 of American charts.

  8. Smash should have been number one. What happened? How does it get beat by a month old game? I don’t know what is more of a dead market now for Nintendo, UK or Japan?

  9. Yea UK will always love Fifa over all others, your stupid to think other wise. As an American, i choose to not give a fuck about UK charts because i am not part of those sales. People need to get over it. Its just a news article folks

  10. Fifa Fifa Fifa….smash never stood a chance over there..

    What I wanna know, is why we never get U.S. sales figures..Or if we do, it comes literally months after the fact… U.S. sales are still not out for Hyrule Warriors. I mean wtf, is it really that hard to get the numbers? How come every other region gets sales numbers rather quickly, but U.S. numbers always remain a mystery.

    1. The problem with our sales charts is the fact the NPD Group doesn’t use single charts for video games. If a game is multiplat, they jumble all of the multiplats into one single category. Therefore, most Nintendo games get curbstomped when we finally do get a damn sales chart/list.

    1. What u guys don’t understand is that FIFA is a monster in UK charts, football is widely popular back here.

  11. Cool your jets guys. It is hardly fair to compare the sales of a game that just came out Friday with one that had been out the entire week and before.

  12. I see many people complaining about nintendo releasing rehashes and such, but swallow EA’s garbage entirely, but its ok when another company who is not nintendo does it, right?

  13. People who buy these games, are more or less similar to those who stand in lines to buy the new Iphone, simply to sustain and maintain the status of your local corporations (Activision, EA, Ubishit, Apple and others).
