WiiU baseline after January 2013 according to VGC was 20kish as March arrives, baseline after January 2014 was 40kish by the end of February according to VGC. Because you keep harping on about 3D Mario the's another example in my previous post on the 3DS where the platform spiked higher than on NSMB2's release and outsold the latter game, now move on.
lol the baseline in late February was higher in 2014 than 2013, you dont say????? Maybe, just maybe that is due to Tropical Freeze which released in late February 2014.
Yes, 3D Land spiked 3DS sales higher, there is this special time of the year called the holidays where people buy gifts for one another, 3D Land released during this time of the year while NSMB2 released in the middle of summer, the time of year where video game sales are the lowest.
here are the official sales from Nintendo
NSMBU-5.19 million, 3D World-4.82 million
NSMB2-10.25 million, 3D Land-10.73 million
2D total-15.44 million, 3D Total-15.55 million
The series are identical, and this is what i said earlier, the 2 series are interchangeable, Wii U could have launched with 3D World and had NSMBU release the following year and there would be basically no difference. Same with the 3DS releases.
Einsam_Delphin & I have never said that 2D Mario is bigger, we are just saying that 3D Mario is not this huge system seller comparitively that Miyamotoo was saying earlier in this thread.
