Batman: Arkham Origins debuts at No.1

Warner Bros third game in the Arkham series has entered the UKIE GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 40 in first place.

Batman: Arkham Origins only managed to sell around half the units achieved by its predecessor, Arkham City, in its first week although it matches the performance of the first game Asylum.

Fellow Warner title LEGO Batman remains the UK’s all-time best-selling Batman game.

Grand Theft Auto V has to settle for second place this week while FIFA 14 and Skylanders Swap Force also both slip a place to third and fourth respectively, the latter dropping some 50 per cent in sales week-on-week.

There’s a 20 place jump for Mind Candy’s Moshi Monsters: Katsuma Unleashed after sales grew 350 per cent week-on-week.
