DmC Devil May Cry has entered the UK all formats chart at No.1 for the week ended January 19.
The Ninja Theory developed series reboot secures publisher Capcom its first chart top spot since Resident Evil 5 back in March 2009, despite its launch week sales coming in at just over a third of Devil May Cry 4’s when that game reached No.1 back in February 2008.
We said in our DmC Devil May Cry review: “It's challenging, accessible, and experimental in all the right ways, while retaining the top-notch combat that put Dante on the map in the first place.”
The game ended FIFA 13’s two week run at the top of the all formats chart, with the football title dropping to No.2 ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Far Cry 3 and Need For Speed: Most Wanted.
