UK chart: London 2012 tie-in dethrones Lego Batman 2

Olympics the bane of Batman's existence.

Sega's official Olympics tie-in London 2012: The Video Game has unseated Lego Batman 2 at the top of the UK all-format charts.

The UK-based sportathon's opening festivities helped boost London 2012 to the pinnacle of the UK top 40 after five weeks of release.

3DS and Wii tie-in Mario & Sonic at the London Olympics also received a boost, high-jumping up to third place after a marathon 38 weeks in the chart.

The only new release to chart this week was Pokémon Conquest, a strategy spin-off for Nintendo DS. It only managed 17th place, however, despite the arrival of the 3DS XL over the weekend.

Still, UK chart company Chart-Track has pegged the Pokemon series as the 10th biggest unit shifter of all video game brands over the last 15 years.

The rest of the top 10 remained largely static, with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier in fourth and Batman: Arkham City in fifth. Modern Warfare 3, Spider-Man, FIFA 12, Skyrim and Kingdom Hearts 3D rounded out the top flight.

The full top 40 lies below.
