Hyrule Warriors sold through only 57.33 percent of its initial shipment in Japan, according to a report from sales tracker Media Create. It was revealed earlier this week that the game’s debut sales came in at 69,090 copies.

Hyrule Warriors sold quite a bit less than other collaborative Warriors titles like One Piece: Pirate Warriors (655,774 units), First of the North Star: Ken’s Rage (385,295 units), and Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn (126,019 units). Still, as Siliconera mentions, it’s silly to draw any sort of comparisons. There are many factors here, such as how the Zelda values gameplay over its story and characters unlike Gundam and One Piece. And we also have to remember that the Wii U’s userbase in Japan is under two million.

Taiko no Tatsujin URL hints at new Wii U game

Bandai Namco has already released one entry in the Taiko no Tatsujin series for Wii U. A second game could now be in the works as well based on a recent discovery.

An official Taiko no Tatsujin URL, wiiu2.taiko-ch.net, currently indicates that the website is a “test page”. That’s exactly the same message users were presented with prior to the first Taiko no Tatsujin Wii U reveal. Also, if you try another domain such as wiiu3.taiko-ch.net, the page simply won’t load. This suggests that the “wiiu2″ subdomain was created with an intended use.

So is this a sign that a second Taiko no Tatsujin Wii U game will be announced soon? A reveal around TGS would certainly make sense.

Ubisoft Europe boss talks Wii U, believes Smash Bros. can increase momentum

Ubisoft’s European boss Alain Corre commented on the status of Wii U while speaking with GamesIndustry at Gamescom 2014 last week.

Corre’s mainly discussed the new Super Smash Bros., which he believes “will be a trigger to increase the momentum of the Wii U at Christmas.” He added that the series “could be magical” on the console.

Corre’s comments in full are as follows:

“To be honest, we always want more consoles. Just Dance 2015 is resonating very well. We think it will please a lot of [existing] Wii U owners and push more families to buy extra Wii Us. But we also believe that Super Smash Bros. will be a trigger to increase the momentum of the Wii U at Christmas. As a gamer, I was playing [Super Smash Bros.] over ten years ago, and it has some of the best moments that Nintendo has shared. I think that franchise could be magical [for the Wii U]. Nintendo has some of the best franchises in the world and it knows how to make great games. It proved that with Mario Kart, and it will prove that again with Super Smash.”

During GameStop’s Q2 2014 earnings conference call, the company’s Mike Mauler mentioned that Mario Kart 8 “helped drive a more than threefold increase in Wii U hardware sales versus Q2 2013.” A couple of higher-ups were asked to further discuss the outlook for Wii U later on.

President Tony Bartel started off by stating:

You know, we’ve been very consistent, every time we’re asked about the Wii U here, that really what they needed was two things. They needed strong first party titles, which we think that they are getting, and they also needed to do a better job of explaining exactly what the connected [unintelligible], as we like to call it, how you actually use that. I think that they’re going to do a great job on both of those.

Clearly, they’ve come out with some nice announcements at gamescom. Preorders really spiked when they came out on that. So we’re very excited about that.
