It'll pass 1million easily, but I don't see it breaking 2m ;(.

Which is a shame, because I heard many people say that TF is much better than Returns.

Globaly? Of course it will.



End of the year it's over a million. It will probably end up as the lowest selling console Donkey Kong platforming game though, with the next contender at (from the top of my head) around 3m. It should still end up with a respectable number regardless at the end of WiiU's life in 4 or 5 years.



It's unlikely to achieve the six million its predecessor managed, but it will indeed break a million. It's a shoe-in for first-game-with-a-new-system, and will keep being so for years.

If Retro would have done a 3D Metroid game instead (released at the same time), would it have sold more software? Would it have sold more hardware?

We may never know for sure but I will bet almost anything that it would have sold alt more of both and when/if Retro does a 3D Metroid game for the Wii U it will sell more software and hardware than DKTF

I highly doubt it. The Metroid franchise isn't very big. Tropical Freeze will probably sell more than Metroid Prime 3 that had a 100M install base.


I hope we get to find out how a new Metroid game does on the Wii u-  at this point none of the usual power hitters among the Nintendo frachises has moved a meanigful amount of consoles-  maybe it is time to give some of the others a chance-      although i boughht the Wii u at launch (mistkae but it lined up w my 8 year olds b day and X mas very well) , I value a console ove ts lifetime-   We still have some excellent  Wii games we have not played  and many others that warant a return -  despite alot of shovel ware and little support at the end of its lifespan, the Wii had alot of great software w a diverse library cumlitlvly- But i am not feeeling very confident about the future of the Wi U library-  there have been some great games but if you don t love all the 1st party games and some most of the 3rd party then the library gets thin quick-    right now the Wii U is primarily a Nintendo/platforming console-  that is not what Nintendo was selling at launch nore is it what i intended to purchase-

Well, everyone says that NSMBU and 3D World did nothing, but I'd say that the Wii U wouldn't have half of it's sales without those games. 3D World sold around 2M and the Wii U also sold around 2M since 3D World's launch. NSMBU had a 57% attach rate before it was bundled (its 64% now).

But yes, the Wii U should have had one additional Nintendo game in the first halves of 2013 and 2014. They don't have enough employees.

I liked Wii u's first year more than Wii's. Probably because I don't like Twilight Princess that much (Wind Waker was much better)  and 3D World is my favourite couch multiplayer game of all time.



I think it will sell over 1 Million and for Wii U sales thats pretty good.

Look back at n64 some games we love and know did not even sell one million hell Majoras mask barely sold 3 and it was a critical success.
