In japan it slightly under performed in regard to its own sales, and flopped in terms of pushing wii U hardware.

Its north american sales are solid, and it will likely see a large hardware boost. North America is where the Wii U has been peforming the best this year. Similar to how in NA the vita looks dead yet in Europe its pushing ok numbers.

Bought this game yesterday when It came out In the UK and Its a brilliant game. Hopefully people will get a chance to try this game If they are on the fence because once you have a go you will be buying this game with your hard earned cash/buck's ;p



I was going to buy it but that golden 3DS XL took that month money. In December, SM3DW is gonna be mine

Far from a flop. It`s the Wii U HW numbers that stopped this game from doing better.
Personally, i think EU numbers will be around 100k, give or take.

People compare 3D World with the other 3D-Marios, but they forget that the installbase was MUCH higher on the Wii and on the 3DS there were 2,5 million more systems.

So in this case, I think 3D World did very well in NA, in Japan "okay". But I think it will do better in Europe than Japan.

Only certain people would/will call it a flop.



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

3D Marios opening numbers are only a flop when compared to 2D Marios opening numbers.

As any game in the US nowadays, it's probably overtracked by a decent margin.

So what do you think the number is most likely? Around 200k?
