Top 20 success for Dungeon Siege III and Alice, but not Child Of Eden

The 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has had to settle for second place in the UK all formats chart, as keep fit title Zumba Fitness returns to the number one spot once again.

Zumba Fitness saw a 43 per cent surge in sales over the course of the week, with a 51 per cent increase in Wii sales. Nintendo's home console accounted for 89 per cent of sales of the title this week.

The title's continuing success prevented Nintendo's critically acclaimed 3DS Zelda title from topping the charts, although according to Chart Track it was bought by 20 per cent of all 3DS owners. Sales are reported to be "not that far away from the top-selling title so far (Pilotwings Resort)".

Following an almost universal critical panning Duke Nukem Forever saw sales drop by 58 per cent in its second week on the charts, although it only fell as far as number three.

The second highest new entry of the week, after Zelda, was Square Enix's Western-made dungeon crawler Dungeon Siege III at number nine. The previously PC-exclusive franchise saw 52 per cent of its sales on the Xbox 360, 25 per cent on the PlayStation 3, and 19 per cent on the PC.

Outside the top 10 EA's Alice: Madness Returns debuted at number 13, with 59 per cent of sales on the Xbox 360, 33 per cent on the PlayStation 3 and 8 per cent on the PC.

Ubisoft's Kinect-enhanced title Child Of Eden did not break into the all formats top 20, but did appear in the Xbox 360 chart at number nine.
