U.K. Charts: Batman: Arkham Origins dethrones GTA V

Superhero prequel Batman: Arkham Origins has booted Grand Theft Auto V off the top of the U.K. All Format Chart following its launch last Friday.

The Warner Bros. Montreal-developed title debuted with half the launch week sales of its predecessor, Arkham City, though still matched those of Arkham Asylum back in 2009.

Interestingly, The Caped Crusader’s biggest sales achievement in the U.K. remains LEGO Batman: The Video Game.

Elsewhere, GTA V falls to second place, followed by FIFA 14, Skylanders Swap Force and Pokemon X.
