Modern Warfare 3 fends off Final Fantasy XIII-2 in February 2012 NPD ranking

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sits atop the NPD’s monthly list of bestselling games for the fourth month in a row. The shooter sequel managed to fend off new releases Final Fantasy XIII-2, UFC Undisputed 3, and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, which rounded out the top four. Two other new releases managed to make it into the top ten, Namco Bandai’s Soul Calibur V (at #7) and Sony’s Twisted Metal reboot (at #9).

The NPD Group didn’t list any Vita games in the top ten during its first month of availability. No 3DS games cracked the top ten either, for that matter.

It’s a fight for the hearts of gamers everywhere in this week’s new release roundup as the octagonal orgy of ouchies that is UFC Undisputed 3 (PS3, Xbox 360) goes up against the open-world vehicular violence of Twisted Metal (PS3).

Fans tap Anderson Silva for UFC Undisputed 3 cover

“Enabling fans worldwide to select the UFC Undisputed 3 cover athlete has been an incredibly rewarding experience,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games at THQ. “Anderson Silva possesses a tremendous work ethic and incredible prowess inside the Octagon, making him an excellent choice to serve as our cover athlete for the game.”

Sadly, there appears to be no mention of the publisher’s more distant projects like Darksiders II, Devil’s Third, Guillermo Del Toro’s Insane and the Turtle Rock-developed first person shooter.

UFC Undisputed 3 enters the octagon in January 2012

Just like they said during their quarterly financial report, THQ has officially announced that UFC Undisputed 3 is in development. The third game in the MMA fighting series is due for release in January 2012 on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

UFC Undisputed 3 will add a huge number of new modes to the franchise’s already packed feature list. The biggest addition is definitely Pride Mode, which features the more brutal style of fighting found in the now defunct promotion. Pride fights include “soccer-style kicks, head stomps and ground knees to the head,” all of which are barred in typical MMA fights.

Besides Pride Mode, the entire game is being rebuilt with an emphasis on making the series more accessible. UFC 3 will include “devastating new moves, responsive striking controls, refined visual presentation and the introduction of a brand new submission system” as well as the option of using traditional or simplified control options. Two new weight classes, featherweight and bantamweight, and more than 150 playable fighters round out the new features.

“We are excited to launch UFC Undisputed 3 in January 2012 and expect it to be the best version yet,” UFC President Dana White said. “We’ve added two new weight classes and several new features to the game that will bring UFC fans closer to the Octagon than ever before.”
