Train2Game News: UK Charts – Final Fantasy XIII-2 is No.1

Train2Game blog Final Fantasy XII-2 screenshotTrain2Game students see Final Fantasy XIII-2 take top spot of the UK Charts, in a week in which three new entries make the top five.

It’s Square Enix’s RPG sequel that’s the first new No.1 of 2012, with the Japanese developed title following in the footsteps of its predecessor which was the UK’s best selling Final Fantasy game of all time.

It’s another new entry from Japan at No.2, with the Metal Gear Solid HD collection from Konami performing very well in its first week on sale.  Battlefield 3 climbs two places to take No.3, while previous chart topper FIFA 12 slips to No.4 after six consecutive weeks at No.1. Another Japanese developed new entry in the form of Soulcalibur V from Namco Bandai completes the top five.

Assassin’s Creed: Revelations continues its revival, rising three to No.6, placing it ahead of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 which drops five to No.7.  The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim also drops five places to No.8, but that won’t stop Train2Game students looking forward to using the soon to be released modding tools.

Just Dance 3 and Saints Row: The Third complete this week’s top ten, while the Zumba Fitness and Zumba Fitness 2  drop to No.11 and No.13 respectively. Meanwhile, Resident Evil: Revelations plummets from No.6, all the way down to No.19 in its second week on sale.
