Resident Evil: Revelations proclaims top spot in this week's UK charts


The shivering mass exposed at the summit of this week's charts is Resident Evil: Revelations. While last year's 3DS game debuted in sixth, its PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC port takes advantage of all its new platforms to knock Metro: Last Light off the top, and provide yet another new No. 1 in the UK.

Last Light continues to flicker in third, with charts mainstay FIFA 13 no doubt climbing to second thanks to some timely price promotion. It was a soccer-packed weekend in the UK, with the final of the Champions League taking place in Wembley, London. This led to a certain, spirited German fan dozing on the shoulder of a certain Joystiq editor on a certain early morning bus ride home. Repeatedly. And drippily.

Moving on, the other new entry in this week's top ten is Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, which surpasses the Wii version's best-ever placement of seventh; the 3DS port debuts in fifth. Further down the charts, Activision's Fast and Furious: Showdown tie-in screeches into a debut position of 14th.
