Captain Toads’ performance in its launch week may not be representative of its total sales, as Nintendo Life reported that Game began selling the game before Christmas, despite the official European release date being the 2nd January. It is not known how much this affected the games chart position, however it had not previously appeared in the All Formats Top 40 before now.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare manages its sixth week at number one, one week more than predecessor Call of Duty: Ghosts managed.
The top three remained the same this week, meaning following Advanced Warfare is Grand Theft Auto V in second, with FIFA 15 in third.
Far Cry 4 climbs up to fourth place, with Assassin’s Creed: Unity down to fifth. The Crew is able to hold onto sixth.
According to Chart Track, only 3,000 sales separate seventh and 10th this week, as Destiny makes its way back into the Top 10 in seventh. Also making a reappearance is WWE 2K15, which is up four places into eighth.
DriveClub is down two places to ninth as the Top 10 is rounded off by Minecraft: Xbox Edition.
