What’s at the top of Chart Track’s UK Software Sales listing this week? FIFA 13? No. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2? Nope, guess again. Far Cry 3? Nah, not even close.
How about a little Level-5 RPG by the name of Ni no Kuni? Ever heard of it?
To the delight of RPG fans everywhere, the PlayStation 3-exclusive Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is this week’s No. 1 on the latest UK Software Sales chart, beating the multiplatform FIFA 13, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3 and Hitman HD Trilogy to the punch. An incredible feat!
FIFA 13 (sales down 5%) is a non-mover at No. 2, while CoD: Black Ops 2 (sales down 5%) sulks down to No. 3 from No. 1 last week. Far Cry 3 (sales up 17%) doesn’t gain any ground but rather slips one place to No. 4, debut title Hitman HD Trilogy appears at No. 5, and Assassin’s Creed III (sales up 16%) also steps down a single step to No. 6.
Need For Speed: Most Wanted (sales down 2%) is similarly affected, moving from No. 6 to No. 7 this week, as is Just Dance 4 (sales up 19%) which is down to No. 8. Hitman Absolution (sales up 26%) meanwhile steps up from No. 10 to No. 9, swapping places with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (sales down 6%) which rounds out the coveted Top Ten.
Interestingly, Chart Track notes that DmC: Devil May Cry (which slipped down from No. 4 to No. 11) is separated from Skyim on the chart by only 50 units in sales.
