UK Top 40: Zumba leads for a 12th week

Zelda 3DS sales surge.

No surprises as to this week's number one - it's three million-selling dance workout title Zumba Fitness.

This is Zumba's ninth consecutive week top and 12th overall - albeit during the quiet months of summer where there's been little else to challenge it.

There are no new games in the top 40 - nothing was released for UK shops last week.

But Zelda: Ocarina of 3DS got a healthy boost, no doubt a knock-on effect from Nintendo's dramatic 3DS price-cut last Friday. It rose from 39th to 13th place, although the 10/10 masterpiece is still the only 3DS exclusive in the chart, outselling the next biggest 3DS game by nearly five to one.

The top 10 is largely left to shuffle among itself. Lego Pirates sailed back into second, Cars 2 is third while Codemasters' racer Dirt 3 is fourth.

The beginning of the footy season brings FIFA 11 back up to fifth after a long-legged 46 weeks on the chart.

LEGO Harry Potter is sixth and Ubisoft's Just Dance 2: Extra Songs is seventh. Call of Juarez: The Cartel, The Sims 3 and L.A. Noire fill out the rest of the top ten.
