Mouldy-looking Dead Island: Riptide has wormed its way to the top of the UK all-formats chart despite selling less than half the launch week sales of its predecessor.
UPDATE: Nintendo UK has told Eurogamer that to qualify for the promotion all you have to do is register the appropriate games by 30th June 2013. It doesn't matter when they were registered as long as it's before this date.
It would be wrong to consider The Chase Begins a prequel to the Wii U exclusive Lego City Undercover. While the game's story is set two years prior to cool cop Chase McCain's return to Lego City, and follows his first encounter with the villainous Rex Fury, in gameplay terms it's more of a remix.
Rather than simply port the game across, developer TT Fusion has taken the same core concept - a free-roaming Lego metropolis where McCain can use different disguises to unlock new abilities as he tracks down a criminal syndicate - and shuffled it around to create a game that offers a fresh take on familiar material.
You'll start your adventure from pretty much the same point, with McCain arriving in town and being introduced to the brusque Officer Dunby. In the Wii U game, Dunby is the city's blustering police chief, but here he's still an opportunistic bully, looking to advance his career at the expense of rookie McCain. So your first task is to fetch some donuts. Then it's off to track down a missing dog. Very quickly, you find yourself on the trail of local gangs, which in turn lead to crime bosses pulling the strings. And behind them? Rex Fury, the true villain of the piece.
3DS prequel Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins will launch in Europe on 26th April, publisher Nintendo has announced.
