Zumba Fitness Wii Title Takes No. 1 Spot on UK Games Chart

Last week we told you that the hugely popular Crysis 2 game had managed to top the UK All-Format Games Chart for the second consecutive week. However, the recently released Nintendo Wii title Zumba Fitness has managed to push past it this week to take the No. 1 spot.

According to Darren Allan over at, 505 Games’ Latin dance title debuted just behind Crytek’s science fiction-based first-person shooter last week. Zumba Fitness has now become the first fitness game to have hit the top of the charts since Wii Fit Plus was released back in 2009.

It’s also become 505 Games’ very first all-format No. 1. This is pretty good going considering sales of the Zumba Fitness game were cut in half following its launch week. However, it wasn’t just the sales of Zumba that dropped last week, as sales of Crysis 2 were also cut by a further 57 percent.

Meanwhile, LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars managed to stay in third place, while the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 moved back up the charts to No. 4. Shift 2: Unleashed ended the week in fifth, followed by THQ’s shooter Homefront at number six.

WWE All Stars finished the week at number 7, while Pokemon Black, Pokemon White and Dynasty Warriors ended the week at numbers 8, 9 and 10 respectively. Did you think that the Crysis 2 game would have stayed at the top for a third week running?
