UK CHARTS: Zumba storms to No.2

505 Games’ Zumba Fitness has shot up the charts this week just one place behind EA’s Crysis 2 which holds on to No.1.

The second top spot for Crysis 2 represents EA’s sixth No.1 of the year following other titles at the top such as FIFA 11 and Dragon Age II.

But 505 Games saw the strongest growth this week with sales of Zumba Fitness jumping 3,148 per cent week-on-week following the release of the fitness game on Wii. It was released on Xbox 360 in late 2010.

Zumba Fitness is also 505 Games’ highest ever entry in the chart, with previous bests including Naughty Bear and Cooking Mama at No.5.

Other new releases from EA include Shift 2 Unleashed which debuted at No.4 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 which reaches No.6. Meanwhile, THQ’s new WWE All Stars brawler also breaks into the Top Ten at No.7.

Nintendo’s Pokmon White and Black dropped to No.9 and No.13 respectively, while its evergreen seller Art Academy rose from No.33 to No.9 following a sales increase of 208 per cent.
