All Articles: Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins
According to The NPD Group’s accounting of the best-selling games from April 2013, NetherRealm Studios’ Injustice: Gods Among Us delivered a superhero-sized punch to the competition last month. The Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U fighter zoomed into the top spot, ahead of another April release, Deep Silver’s Dead Island: Riptide. Other new releases were mostly shut out of the top ten, but Defiance, an MMO shooter based on the Syfy show of the same name, managed to make it to the fifth spot.
Bioshock Infinite continues to sell strong, rounding out the top three, and a pair of 3DS-exclusive games scared up spots in the top ten: Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (#6) and Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins (#9).
The full top ten list for April 2013 can be found right here:
1. Injustice: Gods Among Us (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U)
2. Dead Island: Riptide (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
3. Bioshock Infinite (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
4. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii U)
5. Defiance (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)
6. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS)
7. NBA 2K13 (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, PSP, PC)
8. Skylanders Giants (Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U)
9. Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins (3DS)
10. MLB 13: The Show (PS3, Vita)
April is almost over and there’s plenty of new games scheduled to be released this week, including…
Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, a 3DS prequel to Lego City Undercover that’s available in stores and the 3DS eShop today.
Available Tuesday is Deep Silver’s latest tale of zombies in paradise, Dead Island: Riptide (PC, PS3, Xbox 360). Also available is Star Trek (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), Namco Bandai’s video game prequel to next month’s Star Trek Into Darkness, and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3, Xbox 360), Capcom’s standalone expansion to last year’s Dragon’s Dogma.
It’s another big week of release for the Nintendo Download, but once again, the biggest game won’t be available until Sunday.
TT Games’ Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins is that game and it’ll be available to download from the 3DS eShop on April 21. The handheld prequel to the Wii U hit goes back to tell the story of Chase McCain’s first case, back when he was a rookie cop wet behind his plastic hair.
But if you’re looking for something to download today, Nintendo has added the previously retail-only Tetris: Axis, Harvest Moon 3D: The Tale of Two Towns, and the following list of games to the 3DS eShop and/or DSiWare Shop:
- Mystery Murders: Jack the Ripper (3DS eShop)
- Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo (3DS eShop)
- Witch & Hero (3DS eShop)
- Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever (DSiWare Shop)
Four more games will be added to the handheld download services on April 23:
- Puzzler Brain Games (3DS eShop)
- Puzzler World 2013 (3DS eShop)
- Puzzler Brain Games (DSiWare Shop)
- Puzzler World 2013 (DSiWare Shop)
Finally, the excellent Level-5-developed games Liberation Maiden, Crimson Shroud, and Aero Porter have been marked down for the next month on the 3DS eShop. Liberation Maiden and Crimson Shroud are on sale for $4.99 while Aero Porter is marked all the way down to $2.99. Highly recommended.
