    Warner Bros’ LEGO Jurassic World is top of the UK All Formats Top 40 for the fourth time since its launch.

    Zoological lifestyle simulator Animal Crossing has held strong at the top of the Japanese charts in a week dominated by Nintendo.
    The latest entry in the casual franchise, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, sold more than 172,000 units in its third week on sale – nearly triple the 60,832 total of the number two game, Yo-Kai Watch Busters.
    The total brings the game's lifetime sales to more than 886,000 to date.
    Happy Home Designer sold almost 30 times the number of units the title in tenth place, Bandai Namco’s Cho Tosochu: Atsumare! Saikyo no Tososha-tachi, did.
    Animal Crossing led a chart largely filled with Nintendo releases, with Minecraft for Sony’s Vita and Sengoku Basara 4: Sumeragi for the PS3 the only non-3DS or Wii U entrants in the Top Ten.
    Unsurprisingly, Nintendo also topped the hardware rankings; the New Nintendo 3DS XL and Wii U claimed first and second place, respectively.
    Sony followed closely, with the PS4 and Vita respectively taking the third and fourth spots.

    Mental illness occupies a strange place in video games. After centuries of misdiagnosis and misinterpretation, we've begun to comprehend the reasons behind disorders and their prevalence in modern society. Recent research shows that roughly one in five American adults suffers from some form of mental health issue each year. When it comes to the media, though, these conditions are frequently misrepresented and misunderstood, and video games in particular lean on lazy stereotypes and tropes. Mental illness is used as a motivation for villainy, thrown in as an "interesting" game mechanic or mischaracterized as the sum and whole of a character's personality. There's a worryingly pervasive stigma surrounding mental conditions, and as one of our most dominant art forms, video games need to do a better job in portraying them.

    Four weeks after it first claimed the top spot, LEGO Jurassic Park is back to No.1 in the UK All Formats Top 40.

    It manages this thanks in spite of a 14 per cent dip in sales week-on-week. Last week’s top dog, Rory McIlroy PGA Tour falls to fourth place thanks to a 46 per cent sales decline.
    And Batman: Arkham Knight rises on place to No.2 with an eight per cent dip in sales.
    Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V rises up two positions to third place with sales shooting up 23 per cent. This is thanks to a sales promotion on the PlayStation 4 and Grand Theft Auto V hardware bundle.
    Rockstar’s crime title wasn’t the only game to benefit from PS4 hardware promotions. God of War III Remastered, Bloodborne and The Order 1886 all saw sales increases this week, rising 79 per cent, 148 per cent and 406 per cent sales jumps respectively.
    Price promotions helped a number of other games this week – FIFA 15 sales rose 90 per cent, while The Elder Scrolls Online increased 89 per cent week-on-week. Meanwhile, Battlefield Hardline saw a 148 per cent sales jump.

    Four new releases in the Japanese software Top Ten last week wasn’t enough to dethrone continued phenomenon and chart success Yokai Watch.
    The Busters spin-off of the massively popular franchise was number one for a third consecutive week, shifting over 118,500 units.
    That was despite new competition from Capcom’s Sengoku Basara 4 expansion title Sumeragi, the PS3 and PS4 versions of which debuted in second and third, respectively.
    A new Vita game, Makaishin Trillion, also managed to crack the Top Ten, slotting into sixth position.
    A fourth and final new release, the pithily-titled TV Anime Idol Master Cinderella Girls G4U! Pack Vol. 3, closed out the Top Ten rankings.
    Titles to vanish from the Top Ten last week included Phoenix Wright title Dai Ace Attorney: Naruhodo Ryunosuke no Boken, Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition and Mario Kart 8.
    Both Splatoon and Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ managed to climb spaces – but with the sales of both titles falling week-on-week, this is likely more due to the lack of high-selling competition.
    Meanwhile, last week’s number two, Batman Arkham Knight, fell seven spaces in its second week, down to ninth.
    The game had led Sony’s PS4 to be the best-selling hardware in the region last week, but it was once again usurped by Nintendo’s New 3DS XL, which reclaimed its place at the top of the charts.
    Similarly, Wii U was knocked back below handheld competitor PlayStation Vita, as the charm of Wii U title Yoshi’s Woolly World, which debuted the previous week, wore off. The Vita was the third-best-selling console of the week.
    Here is the software Top Ten for the week ending July 26, according to the latest Famitsu data:


    1. Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Akaneko-dan / Shiroinu-tai (Level 5) 3DS – 118,534
    2. Sengoku Basara 4: Sumeragi (Capcom) PS3 – 46,291 (New)
    3. Sengoku Basara 4: Sumeragi (Capcom) PS4 – 24,848 (New)
    4. Splatoon (Nintendo) Wii U – 22,800
    5. Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ (Nintendo) 3DS – 16,721
    6. Makaishin Trillion (Compile Heart) Vita – 16,687 (New)
    7. Yoshi's Woolly World (Nintendo) Wii U – 14,227
    8. Fire Emblem Fates: White Kingdom / Black Kingdom (Nintendo) 3DS ­– 14,219
    9. Batman Arkham Knight (Warner Bros) PS4 – 14,037
    10. TV Anime Idol Master Cinderella Girls G4U! Pack Vol. 3 (Bandai Namco) PS3 – 12,801 (New)


    And here are the weekly hardware rankings:


    1. New Nintendo 3DS XL – 19,850
    2. PS4 – 15,256
    3. PS Vita – 12,184
    4. Wii U – 11,421

    Rory McIlroy has done the double, staying at the top of the charts for a second week – making it the very first golf game to do so in the UK.
    Rory McIlory PGA Tour – the first title in the franchise without the name of former box star Tiger Woods – retained its number one spot despite sales more than halving (down 56 per cent).
    That’s partly thanks to a complete absence of new releases in the Top 40 last week, leading the existing players to move around.
    LEGO Jurassic World climbs two places to second place, dropping eight per cent, while fellow Warner Bros release Batman Arkham Knight continues to hang in third, sales down almost a third (28 per cent) week-on-week.
    Meanwhile, F1 2015 dropped back to number four as sales more than halve (down 55 per cent). The racing title is closely followed by chart staple Grand Theft Auto V, which has seen sales rise consistently for the last three weeks – it was up eight per cent last week.
    Last week’s second place title God of War III: Remastered fell out of the Top Ten, down six spots to sit at number 15 as sales sell 37 per cent.
    Although there were no completely new entries in the Top 40, Trials Fusion: The Awesome Max Edition managed to break into the Top 40 after debuting outside of the rankings last week, climbing to number 37 on the back of a 70 per cent increase in sales.
    Here is the UK software retail chart for the week ending July 25th, according to GfK Chart-Track and UKIE:


    1. Rory McIlory PGA Tour
    2. LEGO Jurassic World
    3. Batman Arkham Knight
    4. F1 2015
    5. Grand Theft Auto V
    6. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
    7. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
    8. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition
    9. The Elder Scrolls Online
    10. FIFA 15

    Japanese PlayStation 4 sales shot up this week as Batman: Arkham Knight launched in the country.
    That’s according to Famitsu market data that shows that sales of Sony’s latest hardware rose 73 per cent week-on-week.
    Batman: Arkham Knight debuted in second place, shifting 48,330 units in its first week on shelves. This is likely due to the fact that Sony had a marketing deal in place for Warner's most recent Batman title. And, of course, Xbox One sales in the region haven't exactly been stellar.
    But it wasn’t the best-selling game of the week – that title goes to the latest entries in the continually popular Yo-Kai Watch series, Akaneko-dan/Shiroinu-tai, which sold 224,268 units between them.
    Sales of the 3DS phenomena dipped 67 per cent week-on-week, down from its impressive Week One sales of 688,386 units.
    New 3DS XL sales also dipped this week, declining seven per cent, as the hardware falls to second place.
    Wii U sales rose this week on the back of Yoshi’s Woolly World hitting stores. That title debuted in third place, shifting 33,821 units, while Wii U hardware sales rose 11 per cent.
    Below is the software chart for the period between July 13th and July 19th:
    1. Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Akaneko-dan/Shiroinu-tai (Level 5) 3DS – 224,268
    2. Batman: Arkham Knight (Warner Bros) PS4 - 48,330 New
    3. Yoshi's Woolly World (Nintendo) Wii U– 33,821 New
    4. Dai Ace Attorney: Naruhodo Ryunosuke no Boken (Capcom) 3DS – 23,326
    5. Splatoon (Nintendo) Wii U – 23,080
    6. Fire Emblem Fates: White Kingdom/Black Kingdom (Nintendo) 3DS – 22,158
    7. Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ (Nintendo) 3DS – 20,465
    8. Taiko Drum Master: V Version (Bandai Namco) Vita – 12,511
    9. Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (Sony) Vita – 9,263

    5. New Nintendo 3DS, 4,187
    6. PS3, 2,513
    7. Nintendo 3DS, 2,335
    8. Nintendo 3DS LL, 7,94

    After seven years of bogies, Rory McIlroy has helped 2015’s instalment in the PGA Tour series straight to the UK retail chart top spot.
    Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is a big shake-up for the golfing franchise – it’s both the first PGA Tour to drop a year from its title and the first entry without the name of iconic golfer Tiger Woods in 18 years.
    Not only this – McIlroy’s digital debut is only the second PGA title to launch on a Thursday, following Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, which released in March 2013.
    Fortunately, it’s also the first PGA Tour to claim a Number One position in the UK software charts since 2008’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, with the new title achieving a similar level of sales as its predecessor.
    This is probably thanks to its unique position as the only boxed golf title on PS4 and Xbox One at this point in time. (There are a number of digital ball-into-hole simulators.)
    Further down the rankings, F1 2015 slips from pole position to trail PGA Tour as the racing title’s sales drop by three-fifths (57 per cent).
    Batman Arkham Knight sits one space below, down from second to third as sales drop by a third (36 per cent).
    In terms of climbers, Activision’s Destiny jumped four spaces to sixth with sales almost doubling (up 90 per cent) thanks to multiple Amazon Prime Day promotions.
    The only other new entry in the Top 40 is God of War III Remastered, which debuts at number nine, over five years after its original PS3 version.
    Meanwhile, monster-smashing new release Godzilla failed to make it into in the combined software charts at all.
    Here is the Top Ten for the week ending July 18th, courtesy of UKIE and GfK Chart-Track:


    1. Rory McIlroy PGA Tour
    2. F1 2015
    3. Batman Arkham Knight
    4. LEGO Jurassic World
    5. Grand Theft Auto V
    6. Destiny
    7. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
    8. The Elder Scrolls Online
    9. God of War III: Remastered
    10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
