Are Pikmin 3 FW sales proof enough for you that the Wii U is not doomed?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Are Pikmin 3 FW sales proof enough for you that the Wii U is not doomed?

The game sold about 100,000 in it's first few days in Japan.

It did not give the Wii U a huge boost, but this is just one game. One game a month and the Wii U all of a sudden shoots up.

For me, I am relieved and convinced now that the Wii U can easily over come it's current predicament with a few huge games.

No one really wanted Pikmin 3 that much. Many are happy that it is here, but it was never on anyone's " I must have this game!", list.

So are you also now convinced that Nintendo will soon dominate again?

going from 5k wiiU sales a week to 22 thousand is pretty incredible. Especially considering that pikmin 3 had only been out for 2 days.

Plus, I do not think that it as big of system seller as everyone thinks it is. So 22, 000 is really good imo.

I've never doubted that once the fall/holiday season is upon us and there's finally a sizeable collection of quality games available that Wii U will go back to healthy sales.

I bet you have one game particularly in mind.

Maybe, starting to feel like the 3DS formula all over again. What lead to the strong sells of Pikmin 3 was the massive marketing in Japan, along with Luigi U. If they do the same and continue this formula all the way through the Holidays, expect a good chances of strong sells.



Don’t follow the hype, follow the games

Here a little quote I want for those to keep memorize in your head for this coming next gen.

While that's my most wanted game for the Wii U. It's not the one I have in mind for this particular situation, it's the collection of games coming out from October to December I was referring to.

Proves that it can do so well as GC, or the proportional in game market.
In total sales can pass N64.
