Retro PR teach us that they choose DK franchise over others ones, but sales have proved that consumers choice is to ignore the game.

If you are going to bring up a Metroid game, I can assure you, it would have sold just as badly, nevermind a new IP.

The blame for the sales failure is directed at the WiiU itself, not the game.

A new Metroid would have had a lot more hype than another Donkey Kong. It might not have sold as well but it would have made a bigger impact on hardware. 

Other M first week was 45k

So, you can guess.

And I agree, a Metroid HD could have generated more hype than another DK.

I meant a Metroid Prime made by Retro. Not one by Team Ninja that attempted to butcher the entire franchise.  



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Either japanese gamers don`t want a sequel that feeks like the original game or PS4 coming soon might have add something to do with it.

I think it has to do more with the first than the second part.

DKC Returns sold well on Wii, but didn't move consoles Or not as many as some expect for a 6m seller franchise.

I guess it was smoke and mirrors.

I fear the day you´ll be making a thread that says "So, MK8 didn´t move as many consoles as expected" or something like that :(

That's what I mean. Even Other M opened bigger than DK. Now a true Prime HD could have generated more hype and maybe more sales.

That was on the Wii! How could you possible compare those totally distinct scenarios?

Forum hype does not equate real world sales. Metroid would have done as much for the WiiU as DK.

Tropical Freeze  should have  been released in December just in time for the holiday season. Somebody has dun goofed.

I expect good sales for MK and SSB.

It was delayed to disguise the drought. I guess they failed.

You don't have to tell me. The big hype and defense for DK on forums didn't translate in sales.
