UK Videogame Charts: Minecraft Hits the Top
Minecraft has completed its steady climb to the top of the UK All Formats Videogame Charts, with a sales surge of 74% lifting it to the top spot.

You might chalk this up as a disappointment for Nintendo, which released two first-party Wii U titles last week. Pikmin 3 managed to enter the chart at Number 2, while New Super Luigi U debuted at Number 13. It's worth keeping in mind, however, that Pikmin 2 debuted at 32 in the charts when it got its initial GameCube release (though admittedly that was in the much more crowded pre-Christmas period).

The Last of Us sees its six week run at the top ended, having dropped to Number 3 with a 16% drop. Dynasty Warriors 8, last week's big release from Tecmo Koei, has fallen from Number 5 last week to Number 18.

You can see the Top 10 in full below.
