LEGO City Undercover debuts at 12th in the UK all-formats software charts

#1RotuhiiriPosted 4/2/2013 2:55:38 AM

Two weeks in a row with very strong Wii U releases in the UK now. Also keep in mind that this is the all-formats charts so it's measured against PS3+PC+360 Tomb Raider sales for example.

Monster Hunter 3U (3DS+Wii U) also managed to stay in the charts too at number 39.

I figured monkeyspoon wouldn't be interested to post this week's charts.

I'm new to the Monster Hunter series but this game is awesome. I'm honestly scratching my head as to why the series isn't bigger in the West.

Nice to see Lego doing well, my wife has pretty much taken over the U since its release.

12th isn't bad. I wonder how long it will stay in there.

Monster hunter has already dropped out the top 20.

Here's the chart that goes by individual platform, which is what most people use:

Not much Nintendo at all, and no Monster Hunter.

Lego games typically have fairly long chart lifecycles. Monster Hunter is the type of game with a small fanbase (in Europe anyway) who mostly buy on day one, resulting in the game charting in its first week and then falling immediately. When Monster Hunter leaves the charts (which it will do next week unless something massively unexpected happens), it will never re-appear again. Lego games, however, tend to hover in the charts for a longer time - you can see, for example, that Lego Batman 2 and Lego Lord of the Rings are both still in the UK charts.

Lego City, of course, has a much bigger challenge in terms of staying in the charts than Lego Batman 2 does, but it should be able to hold on for a month or two.

I decided to give it s go, the lack of multiplayer put me off, but it does look like good fun. My local GAME were sold out though, apparently it was really popular.
