Splatoon Debuts 2nd In UK Weekly Video Game Charts

GFK has release the UK video game sales chart for the week ending May 3o, and it appears Splatoon has made a respectable debut in the british Isles.

Splatoon was not able to usurp Witcher 3 for the top spot, but it did manage grab 2nd place this week. The titles has become the fifth fastest Wii U game and is the biggest launch for a New IP, taking the honor way from Ubisofts, ZombiU.

‘The Witcher III: Wild Hunt’ (-69%) is king of the video game jungle for a second week, safely dodging the attack of Nintendo’s new Amiibo-enabled shooter ‘Splatoon’, which debuts at No2.”

Mario Kart 8 continues to be an evergreen title, placing 37th in the individual format charts. This week more Nintendo games have charted than usual, with Mario Party 10, Super Smash Bros., and the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD making charting in the all format category.

Overall, Splatoon’s performance in a weak market for the Wii U has been solid. Perhaps it will display decent legs in the weeks to come.
