Last Friday saw Nintendo release a triple salvo of 3DS titles in the UK: Miitopia, Hey! Pikmin and Dr. Kawashima’s Devilish Brain Training. The trio of games fared fair to poorly.
Miitopia made the UK top 10, in seventh place – just above another new entry, Rugby League Live 4, in eighth.
Hey! Pikmin just made the chart, way down in 29th position. “This basic puzzle-platformer captures none of the depth and panic of Miyamoto’s surreal strategy games, but a good deal of the charm,” Oli opined in Eurogamer’s Hey! Pikmin review.
Dr. Kawashima – which European fans have been waiting more than five years to be localised – did not make the top 40 at all.
Crash Bandicoot was, once again, by far the best-selling game in the UK. But Nintendo still has something to celebrate – sales of Splatoon 2 on Switch held steady, and the game remained in second place.
The full top 10 lies below:
- Crash Bandicoot
- Splatoon 2
- Fallout 4
- Dishonored 2
- Rugby League Live 4
- FIFA 17
- Ghost Recon: Wildlands
