UKIE Game Charts, Week 5 2013

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

We love charts here at Player Attack, and one of the highlights of our week is receiving the latest details from UKIE, who send us the 40 best-selling titles in Britain, as announced by the The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment.

It's not every week that we are surprised by the #1 game. Traditionally speaking, the charts are a fairly predictable affair - dominated by something full of guns, footballs or the latest exercise trend. The top spot is traditionally filled by a game that's been released on every single platform, saturating the market and guaranteeing itself a combined best-seller.

Today though, we have something completely different. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a glorious Japanese RPG incorporating animation from world-renowned Studio Ghibli. And it's a PS3 exclusive, to boot. The adorable release has bumped last week's #1, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, down to #3 - and that, my friends, is no mean feat. Congratulations, Namco Bandai and Level 5! Congratulations indeed.
