DmC: Devil May Cry, Capcom's warmly-received but slightly controversial reboot of the Devil May Cry series, has taken the top spot in the UK charts in its first week, knocking FIFA 13 down into second place after its two-week stint at the top.

It's Capcom's first UK number one since Resident Evil 5 in 2009, even though Ninja Theory's DmC could only manage just over a third of what Devil May Cry 4 sold in its first week way back in 2008. DmC even had a three-day head start thanks to its worldwide Tuesday launch - games in the UK are traditionally launched on Friday.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II rounds out the top three, with Far Cry 3 dropping two places to fourth and Need for Speed: Most Wanted sticking in fifth.

DmC is the only new release to chart in the Top 40 this week, although 2K's NBA 2k13 returns in 19th, Paper Mario: Sticker Star pops in at 35th and Battlefield 3 enters at 39.
