UK Top 40: Zumba beats Zelda

Child of Eden enters in 25th.

Resurgent dance regime Zumba Fitness has leapt back to the top of the UK gaming chart.

Nintendo's Zelda: Ocarina of Time remake for 3DS surfaced in second. It's the highest placing yet for a 3DS exclusive - around 20 per cent of UK 3DS owners picked up the game.

This leaves Duke Nukem Forever, last week's number one, in third.

The chart's second-highest new entry? Square Enix role-player Dungeon Siege III. It dug in for ninth place and beat fellow newcomer Alice: Madness Returns, which managed 13th.

Snazzy on-rails rhythm shooter Child of Eden was the week's other new game. Despite gorgeous graphics and a prestigious pedigree (coming from Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi) it could only muster a placing in 25th.

L.A. Noire shuffles down to fourth, while a continued strong showing for Brink sees the Splash Damage shooter move back up the table into fifth.

Lego Pirates, Dirt 3 and inFamous 2 make up sixth, seventh and eighth respectively, with FIFA 11 completing the top ten.

On its original Christmas 1998 launch, Ocarina of Time for the N64 stormed to first place with a record-breaking 100,000 first week sales. Ocarina 3D isn't doing shabbily either - total sales have almost equalled current 3DS top-seller Pilotwings Resort, out since launch week.
