A 74 per cent surge in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sales prevented Pikmin 3 from claiming Nintendo's first Wii U No.1 in the All Formats Chart.

Pikmin 3 is the highest placed Wii U title of the 43 games released for the platform thus far. The game did perform considerably better than the GameCube's Pikmin 2, however, which struggled into the chart at No.32 back in 2004.

Nintendo also released New Super Luigi U, which entered the chart at No.13.

The Last of Us falls to No.3 after spending six weeks at the top.

Elsewhere Dynasty Warriors 8 drops from No.5 to No.18 – expected given its niche audience – and The Smurfs 2 recorded a 213 per cent sales increase which sees its enter the Top 40 at No.25.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

There's nothing to get excited about on Friday so expect the current chart toppers to battle for No.1 next week. Pikmin 3 may struggle to maintain its position given the small Wii U installed base, but strong reviews and positive word of mouth may help counter the usual week 2 decline.

Probably most People who already had a WiiU did buy Pikmin Day One like me, I wonder how it does next Week. I love Pikmin 3, but I just can't see it as a big System Seller, its too strange and not enough Mainstream.
But maybe I'm wrong.

Well done Pikmin 3. I'm not surprised New Super Luigi only made to 13th, as most people would of just bought it as DLC a couple weeks back for much cheaper.
