Reckoning Dethrones Final Fantasy XIII-2 in the UK

Last week, Final Fantasy XIII-2 managed to steal the number one slot on the UK sales chart, knocking FIFA 12 down the list. This week, the Square Enix RPG faces a similar situation as Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning steals the spotlight, sending FFXIII-2 down to second place.

This is a huge accomplishment for 38 Studios and Big Huge Games, as the last original IP to place first was the sleeper hit Dead Island. Even more impressive, however, is the fact that Reckoning is the first role-playing original IP to make it to the top spot since the original Pokemon released over 13 years ago.

The Darkness 2 also does quite well, coming in right behind Final Fantasy XIII-2 in third place. Check out the full list below:

  1. Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
  2. Final Fantasy XIII-2
  3. The Darkness 2
  4. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
  5. FIFA 12
  6. Battlefield 3
  7. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  8. Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
  9. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
  10. Mario & Sonic London 2012 Olympic Games
