I did not like 3D Land and don't want Mario 3D to be as limited as a 2D game and based on multiplayer and simpliest design. I like Zelda Between World but would be pissed if Wii U Zelda was made the same way.

To me , this game should have been 3DS and we have been robbed of the true 3D Mario. That's why I like this game selling poorly. It can say "never do it anymore" to Nintendo. Galaxy's games sold great.

Wii U install base: 4,3 million
Mario 3D world,
worldwide sales::  0,71 million
Attachrate:
17.3%

3DS install base:
39,5 million
Zelda A Link Between, worldwide sales: 0,8 million
Attachrate: 2.0%

I quite unfair to say that Mario 3D world is selling poorly since consoles sell less the handhelds. And Wii U install base inst the highest either.
Almost every fifth Wii U owner owns Mario 3D world thats a hight attachrate, imagine if the installbase would have been higher. And Miyamoto
has hinted that Galaxy game could be in the making, but knowing Nintendo thier allways trying something.

Yes I take great personal enjoyment in games selling below expectations, it is the most exciting thing I do in my life.

it´s funny to notice how some people here really don´t understand - or just pretend to not understand - how the market works, or are simply dumb.

then Super Mario 3d world sold 700k... ok..

how many digital copies did it sold?
how many copies nintendo needs to sell in order to make some profit?
how many copies will it sell lifetime?

Unless we have the answer to these three questions, we can´t say it´s a commercial failure.

Those are not the important questions. The real question is: how much could it already have sold if it hade also launched on other platforms? And the answer is probably 4-5 million at the very least, i think even more.

You can't justify missing out on that many sales forever, i can almost see the Playstation Mario boxart already.

Would PS fans really buy Mario games ? They´re not even buying Knack.....or Rayman.....

yeah, it might sell something on sony consoles... but we are now actually discussing if it is a commercial failure or not the way it is. And it´s still too early too tell.

Agree. Without answers we cannot say it is a commercial success neither.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


I decided to look up the sales because all this talk about it being a flop. It has sold 700K, in my opinion that is very good given the poor sales of Wii U.

Mario games aren't known for mega launches, the series has mega legs. I expect a good boost from Christmas as well.

...completely ignore WiiU.  3D World, major title, failed to push WiiU hardware above even PS3/360. 

Ignore Wii U... even though Wii U is obviously the problem.

Not interested in this Mario title at all, even if it got rave reviews which I find biased I could care less...

Now a galaxy type game would at least get my attention..


lol any review for any game is biased using that logic.

wasnt trying to troll, figured most people who wanted the game, bought it. especially for black friday when there were deals on the system. Im just pessimistic


There were barely any deals on the system for Black Friday. Actually I believe only one major retalier had it under MSRP while basically every major retailer had some type of deal on 360/PS3/3DS. U could get 360 for as low as $99, PS3 for $149 and 2DS/3DS for $99/149 vs Wii U for $249.

fair enough

this makes no sense, you're acting like PS owners dont own a Ninty system as well and vice versa, why do people insist we live in a world where people only buy one system. If Wii/PS360 proved anything is that it is not the case at all. Knack is terrible example as it got mediocore reviews, were SOny fans supposed to buy that mediocore game in droves? hell no. Rayman Origins sold the best on PS3 some forget that. and Origins isnt that far behind the Wii U version which isnt bad considering the Wii U version got most of the ads and attention.

Good enough games will sell bad hardware.  3D World isn't selling WiiU hardware so 3D World is not good enough.
