History: Legends of War, a footnote in the UK Vita chart

Ouch! Not only is an early Vita title back at No.1 but its the cheapest boxed-game in Vita-dom. As if that's not a pretty grim indicator of Vita releases and sales overall, a decent new game, Slitherine's Legends of War only manages to make in at No. 20. Still it'll all be better in a couple of weeks :).

Then again, having played Virtua Tennis for a bit recently, you have to see the appeal, loads of fun mini-games, compelling world tour mode with online and plenty of trophies, it is pretty much the perfect portable title.

To be fair, with a £40+ price tag (UPDATE: Now down to £33, that was quick), many gamers might be waiting until the price drops a bit for this one, and it hasn't exactly been visible from a marketing perspective . Still, the very similar Patton game on the PSP was pretty good and this a rare breed of the Vita (video here), so please pick it up, when you think the price is right.
