Oh I forgot to say about Japan, that you can also download the demo from the e-shop. Then if you buy the Wii Fit U meter you get the full version of the game free.

Never expected any kind of games in the Wii franchise  to sell well  on the Wii U.. This is why I am very surprised Wii Party U sold so well.

Isn't it heavily bundled though?

Sure, but even without the bundles Wii Party U is still doing  better than Wii Fit U.. Funny, because Wii Fit  overall did better than Wii Party in Japan..

I thought it was delayed to 2014.

It's strange... Before Xmas I had seen tons of TV commercials featuring Wii Fit U, in Amazon France it's available since 13th December it seems, but it has never appeared in any chart. Your thoughts? Did everyone become slim enough with the first Wii Fit?

It was only a partial release before Christmas, and most people who will be getting it that way will probably be using the special deal Nintendo gave to those who already have a Balance Board - download the "demo" version, buy a Fit Meter, and it unlocks the game fully, so long as you have a Balance Board.

This makes it far cheaper than the regular Retail version. And it's effectively a digital distribution version. So unless they're tracking the sales of Fit Meters (which they probably aren't), it won't show up on charts. Note that I'm one of the people who made use of the deal.

I'm a big Nintendo fan and enjoying my Wii U a lot, but this is really what they deserve. It's disgusting how they ignore all third party developers and thinking doing exactly the same as previous gen will give them huge sales again. Now Wii Party U, NSMBU and Wii Fit aren't selling the 20 millions they did first, but even doing lower than Sony's new IP's, it's time for Nintendo to do something about this amateurish approach in the console market


NSMBU  has 3.18mil sales on a 5mil userbase... Wat do you mean? Is it suppose to sell more lol! 

OT: I think Wii Fit U is eShop Only so its hard to tell but who cares. Its a fitness game

3.18M seems a bit too high. We'll have to wait for Nintendo on that one.



@ Aielyn - Is it good? I was thinking of getting it through that deal.

True, I didn't know about that. It must be part of their strategy to increase their digital business, just like Wii Sports Club. 



Retail version is delayed for January 10th for USA, don't know for other regions...

There is no retail version of Wii Fit U and bundles are not out yet so you guys are jumping to conclusion and Nintendo does not release numbers of digital downloads/purchases so we can't know what is going on thus why is the fuss about a sale of a game that retail version is not yet released...



how can we tell if its bombing when its not even out yet?
