Minecraft Xbox 360’s retail box has hit top of the UK charts this week after a fair few weeks battling all-comers in the top five. New entry Pikmin 3 has debuted at second, and it’s the first Wii U title to make such a dent in the UK chart since the console launched here in December.

It’s little wonder too, because as you can see from our review score round-up, Pikmin 3 has scored very well among the gaming press.

I also wrote my own opinion of the game and captured some gameplay footage while I played it. Check it out here.
