The other major debut last week was the 3DS's New Super Mario Bros 2, which flew in at second place. Although it may seem awkward for a major Mario to launch in second, New Super Mario Bros also started its life in second place back in 2006. The game is sure to have a long (raccoon) tail.
Meanwhile, London 2012: The Official Video Game of the Olympic Games took bronze after a couple golden weeks.
