Beating Wii U + 3DS in the US is like Level 1-2. Let's take the Warp Zone and compare them on a Global level.

I made another thread that compares shipment data for each region and worldwide.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

It's so sad to see the Wii U numbers really, 2014 there were some really really good first party titles.
Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros, Captain Toad.. that's a good lineup. Lots of 2018 games there as well ;P

I think It just hit me... all of the games you mentioned were re-released this year, except Smash. O.o



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Not MK8 either, but we did get a new itteration of Smash though so lineups are really similar in that regard.

And there is the level insane, beating in Japan

Which won't happen, unfortunately. I can't see Switch outdoing 3DS even alone. I think it would be pretty awesome already if it reached 18m LT there.

How does this make any sense? Beating Wii U + 3DS in the US is pretty much the exact same difficulty as beating them globally.

US Wii U + 3DS: 28M
US Best-Selling Hardware: 52M
54%

WW Wii U + 3DS: 87M
WW Best-Selling Hardware: 158M
55%

Japan is the hard mode.

JPN Wii U + 3DS: 27M
JPN Best-Selling Hardware: 33M
82%

Yes, pure HH power of 3DS in Japan make it harder for a Hybrid to beat in Japan.

And it makes me sad that since PS2 they have been ever moving away from consoles and AAA games.

That's the 8-2 Marathon Level

Beating Wii & DS is Minus World



Wii U was a miserable piece of product, they got ahead of themselves and overstayed their welcome with the casual crowd engagement.
