Tomb Raider is the UK’s biggest launch of the year so far. The reboot is in top spot, and, according to UK sales company Chart-Track, “comfortably” outsold 2013′s previous best, Sega’s Aliens: Colonial Marines, by more than double the week one sell-through.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is finally coming to our Nintendo Wii’s on November 20. This entry in the Zelda saga is said to lay the foundation for the entire series, explaining how the Master Sword was forged, and so much more.
