Injustice Takes UK Top Spot

Fire Emblem at 3

Warner Bros' Injustice: Gods Among Us has ended Bioshock Infinite's reign at the top of the UK All Formats Chart this week.

The brawler is WB's first chart-topper since Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes (which drops to 12 this week) hit the mark back in mid-2012, and is developer Neatherrealm's first UK number 1 (their Mortal Kombat reboot entered the chart in second position, behind Portal 2 in 2011.) Also of note, is the fact that its the first fighting game to reach the pinnacle of the chart since UFC Undisputed 3 in February 2012 - which posted similar first-week sales numbers.

Bioshock Infinite saw a sales decline of some 43% week-on-week, and Nintendo's Fire Emblem: Awakening enters the chart in third place as this week's only other new release.
