FIFA 15 holds off Shadow of Mordor on U.K. charts

FIFA 15 has scored a second week at the summit of the U.K. All Format Chart this week, despite stiff competition from new entries including Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Forza Horizon 2.

Despite not taking first place, Shadow of Mordor enjoyed a successful launch, taking the biggest opener in the U.K. for a video game based on The Lord of the Rings.

The PlayStation 4 version of the fantasy-action title made up 56 percent of sales, with Xbox One gobbling up 41 percent, and the PC release taking three percent. The game has yet to release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Nintendo 3DS title, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, managed to secure a top 5 position alongside Forza Horizon 2.
