LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Summary
One of the most iconic comic book heroes of all time has been Lego-ified again. Except this time, it's a huge improvement upon the lacklustre and soulless original Lego Batman.
Pikmin 3, the most highly-anticipated Wii U game - and perhaps the only AAA Wii U exclusive game left - wasn't able to capture the top spot in the UK's weekly game sales chart, as the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft took the top spot. It did manage to outsell The Last of Us, however.
Major Nelson has confirmed an earlier report that open world zombie game State of Decay will be coming the 5th June. The site also revealed that Tomb Raider, MLB 2K13 and Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes will be available the 4th June digitally on Xbox on Demand, while the Hitman Contracts and Silent Assassin HD Double Pack arrives on the 11th June.
September's U.S. retail video game sales have been revealed by the NPD. According to the firm, sales have declined 24% year-over-year. Console sales took the biggest hit, down 39% compared to September 2011.
Square Enix's Sleeping Dogs wakes up long enough to clamber atop the UK all format chart once again as ArenaNet's MMO Guild Wars 2 slinks down 6th. The Sims 3: Supernatural enters 2nd.
3rd is reserved for New Super Mario Bros. 2 for another week, while London 2012 and LEGO Batman 2 keep 4th and 5th respectively. Darksiders II comes 9th and COD: Modern Warfare 3 10th.
Darksiders II led software sales in the UK for August 2012, with NCAA Football 13, the collegiate American football EA Sports title, making a surprising #4 appearance. Sleeping Dogs, which the weekly charts for two straight weeks, debuted at #6.
