Locked: Wii U Sells 300k over the weekend in Japan

Forums - Sales Discussion - Wii U Sells 300k over the weekend in Japan

Nintendo has had a strong launch in Japan, where the Wii U sold 307,000 units over the course of the weekend. By comparison, the original Wii sold 350,000 units. The Wii U would have likely sold more if it wasn’t for limited availability. During the first week on the market in North America, the Wii U sold 400,000 units.

We also got the breakdown of the top selling Wii U games in Japan during the launch:

  • New Super Mario Bros U: 160,140
  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate: 106,454
  • Nintendo Land: 66,583
  • ZombiU: 10,680
  • Warriors Orichi 3 Hyper: 7,252
  • Tekken Tag Tournament 2: 4,951

We’re still awaiting the first sales numbers for Europe. We know that on launch day, the Wii U sold out in the UK, selling some 40,000 units.

A healthy software attach rate compared to the 3DS and Vita launches.

Love and tolerate.

Hardware sales are really good !!!

Now I feel a little better about the Wii U

Even if it has a more rocky start than Wii, Nintendo has the first mover advantage this time. Something that has only happened with NES and 3DS.


Congrats for the 1st million!

Exactly what I thought/hoped it would be. Confirms to me that Wii U has undoubted broke 1 million worldwide.
