February kicks off with developer Level 5 and publisher Namco Bandai’s new release ‘Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch’ taking the No1 spot.
The new RPG which incorporates the animation of the world renowned Studio Ghibli team sees last week’s No1 ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II’ (-5%) pushed down to No3. It’s an impressive feat for the title which releases both its Standard and Wizard’s Edition exclusively for PS3. EA are above Activision at No2 with ‘FIFA 13’ (-5%) ensuring it hasn’t slipped below 2nd spot since the turn of the year. Ubisoft’s ‘Far Cry 3’ (+17%) is down a place to No4. Agent 47 makes two appearances in our Top 10 this week with the release of ‘Hitman: HD Trilogy’ new at No5 - developer IO Interactive’s past incarnations ‘Hitman 2: Silent Assassin’, ‘Hitman: Contracts’ & ‘Hitman: Blood Money’ remastered on one disc for PS3 & Xbox360. Agent 47’s latest outing ‘Hitman Absolution’ (+26%) is further down but climbs a spot to No9.
Ubisoft are well represented with ‘Assassin’s Creed III’ (+16%) and ‘Just Dance 4’ (+19%) also in the Top 10 each slipping a place to No6 and No8 respectively. Sandwiched in between them is EA’s ‘Need for Speed Most Wanted’ (-2%) at No7. Bethesda take the No10 spot with ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’ (-6%) just ahead of Capcom’s ‘DMC’ which sits at No11 (38%) separated by less than fifty sales.
