The problem is the Wii U, no game will make rebound this system. Not MK8, not SSBU. The problem is the damn console and until the Wii U ends it's life for good you will see franchise after franchise bombing. No Metroid or Zelda is going to change that.
Agree. And that's why I want Nintendo to develop games, just like the GC era, for the low userbase. Despite low HW sales for GC, SW numbers were very good. But that's not happening with the Wii U and looks like DK was not a game that people were interested.
I eat crow on 3DFlop thought. It didn't move consoles, but it was very well sold in the userbase with a 30% attach rate.
Let's wait to see how DK does though. You said the same thing about 3DFlop on it's first week and you are eating crow now.
