The Last of Us Holds off Mario & Luigi in the UK to Capture Top Spot for the 5th Time in a Row

Facing its stiffest competition since launch last month, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us (down 43%) continued to be a chart-topping juggernaut, finishing in first place for a fifth week in a row. If The Last of Us manages to place first next week, it will match the unbroken six week runs of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and FIFA 12, despite only being released on one system.

Elsewhere, newcomer Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. wasn’t able to do enough to beat fellow 3DS title, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, settling for a third place debut.

Here’s the top 19 selling games in the UK for the week ending July 13th:

  1. The Last of Us
