Not sure what can be done about Wii U in Japan. Needs a killer Monster Hunter game and some other 3rd party RPG's I think.

Mario is hardly flying off the shelves but I suppose the usual legs will help it, though in Japan I doubt it'll match NSMBU. Everything else is pretty low (60% for LR doesn't seem too bad but the guy on GAF who first posted these said the shipment was much smaller than FFXIII-2, which isn't very encouraging). If that game opened up to 540k according to vgchartz, then LR will do something in the region of 350k I feel. Either way, I think we're going to see GTA beat FF in Japan this year, testament to how badly the XIII trilogy has performed for SE

first day sell-through

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XII - 50-60% 

Atelier Rorona - 30-40%

Aikatsu 2 - 30%

Super Mario 3D World - 20%

One Piece: Unlimited World Red - 20%

Taiko no Tatsujin Wii U Version - 5%

Cooking Mama 5 - 5%

Wow Cooking Mama thats pretty bad. 

Wonder if 20% of 200k or more for first shippment. All those numbers looks horrible. 



20% for 3D Flop? hahahahaha
Galaxy 3 will come sooner than we imagine. Now just left DKTropicalFlop and Retro will be back to the amazing Metroid franchise.

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

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Taiko and Mario will sell with legs. Though, I question why retailers ordered such massive initial shipments, seems kind of odd. Haven't they realised by now that games like these will sell over a period of months.

Lightning is okay, but I'm willing to bet retailers ordered significantly less copies after they were left with so many extra copies of XIII-2, so the actual number probably isn't that impressive.

If Mario is failing hard, just imagine how badly a Metroid would bomb.

But Metroid always bombs. Even the 25th anniversary bombed hard that nobody noticed it.

Don't know about Taiko, probably should've been a bit higher, but the percentage of Mario is ok. It has to do with being so close to holidays, and being a big Nintendo game. And it will probably sell a lot during the weekend. Still, I'm not very optimistic with this game.

 

LR seems, ok too, I would've expected a lower percentage, although we still need to know how big was the shipment.

Can't find a single reason to defend One Piece.

 



I am not worried about Mario. Its going to sell very well.



I am surprised people are actually expecting 300k+ for FF...
I would say 200k. 250k at most!
