Across the pond, potato chips are called “crisps.” They also call Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon “Luigi’s Mansion 2.” But no matter what you want to call the game, we can all settle on “success.” That’s because Luigi’s latest outing debuted at number 5 in the UK’s all-format software chart last week. Not bad for the oft-overlooked younger brother of Mario.
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon wasn’t the only Nintendo game making its UK debut, however. LEGO City Undercover just missed the Top 10, placing 12th place on the list. While this is hardly a poor showing, it doesn’t match the recent dual platform release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, which placed at number 7 on the charts just last week. Those numbers didn’t last for very long, however. The game fell to 39th place on this week’s charts.
Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon‘s success isn’t just being seen in stores. Critics also seem to be embracing the green-clad plumber. The game currently holds an 86% rating on Metacritic, 8 points higher than the original Luigi’s Mansion.
