Above the clouds

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has ventured to the top of the UK sales charts, conjuring itself into first position for the week. The striking Level-5 and Studio Ghibli collaboration wrapped its wand around the back of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s head, pushing the popular first-person shooter into third position. Last week’s only other new entry, the Hitman HD Trilogy, snuck into fifth, leaving a pile of dead bodies in its wake.

According to Lee Kirton, Namco Bandai’s UK PR gaffer, Ni No Kuni actually sold out in many stores across the UK. "We have more stock going into the channel this week so check with local stores to receive your copy," he told Eurogamer.net. "We hope the word of mouth and demand for the title continues as it does prove that JRPGs are special and we invest a lot of time and effort within this genre."

The remainder of the chart played host to the usual array of highfliers, including FIFA 13, Far Cry 3, and Need for Speed Most Wanted. You can peruse the full list of movers and shakers through here. Let us know if you picked up any new games over the last seven days in the comments section below.
