Sales chart shuffled as debut games take tops spots

Square Enix's re-imagined Tomb Raider has claimed the top spot of the UK chart for the week ended March 9th, according to Chart-Track.

The critically praised by technically hampered SimCity debuted at number two, in what is a chart dominated by new titles.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 came into the chart to claim the third spot, while fellow debut title The Sims 3: University Life took fourth.

Consequently, EA Sports' FIFA 13 dropped from second place to fifth, keeping its head above the water while Crysis 3 plunges from first to sixth place.

Slipping down the chart from fourth to seventh, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was followed by Far Cry 3 at number eight.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengence slipped six places to come in at number nine, while Skyrim proved its lasting power by climbing back into the charts to close it off at number ten.

  1. Tomb Raider
  2. SimCity
  3. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
  4. The Sims 3: University
