UK Charts: Ni No Kuni in at number one

Studio Ghibli and Level-5 have claimed a UK number one with Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch, a PS3 exclusive we described as ‘a game full of youthful wonder, imagination and thoughtfulness’ in our review.

The only other high profile new entry this week was Square-Enix’s Hitman: HD Trilogy, which made its debut at number five. Capcom’s DmC narrowly missed out on a top spot this week, just fifty copies behind Skyrim in tenth position.
