Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo named longest-running number one for Nintendo DS
Moshling Zoo has replaced Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training as the longest-running number one for the Nintendo DS.

Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo has become the longest-running number one Nintendo DS game in the console's history, knocking Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training from the top spot.

The Black Lantern-developed title, which was released six months ago, has now held the number one position for Nintendo DS sales for 15 consecutive weeks.

Aiming to deliver a unique take on the Moshi Universe, the game offers fans the chance to collect 52 Moshlings, including the exclusive Nipper the Titchy Trundlebot.

It also includes mini-games, educational puzzles and the opportunity to win awards and trophies.

Michael Acton Smith, creator and chief executive of Moshi Monsters, said: "This is the first videogame we've ever published at Mind Candy so we're delighted and amazed by how well it has done."

Since it hit the market, Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo has outsold some of the biggest Nintendo DS titles, including Batman: Arkham City, Forza 4, Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 and Lego: Pirates of the Caribbean.
