January 2014 NPD: Wii Fit U sells under 20,000 units

Posted on February 16, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

The ever-reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar” has come through with one piece of noteworthy data.

Last month, Wii Fit U is said to have sold under 20,000 copies. Those sales were obtained in a little less than a month.

Wii Fit U is selling at an incredibly slower rate than Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, though that was to be expected. Wii U has a much lower installed base than its predecessor, for one thing. Also keep in mind that Nintendo has been offering the title on the eShop, and allowed console owners to purchase the digital version for just $20 by syncing their Fit Meters.

    Most people whom I know took advantage of the online deal and simply got the Wii Fit Meter and they already had a balance board. Unless you are a newcomer and do not have a balance board then the online deal has pretty much been the best way to get this game.

    Im waiting for the bundle to go back on sale 90 bucks is pretty steep.

      The bundle comes with the Game ($60), Wii Fit Meter (20), and Balance board (ebay going for $20-30) plus batteries. It’s not really that steep compared to buying it individually. I bought a balance board through ebay and a fit meter so I spent $50 on the game.

    Not surprising…everyone I know didn’t care about the idea of Wii Fit U back in 2012. And those that had Wii balance boards from the Wii on Wii Fit, played it a few times, then their balance board caught dust never to be used by their family again.

    The market for Wii Fit on Wii U is gone. I doubt the game has even sold over 100k across digital and retail since November. The staggered release did nothing but cause confusion as to when it was “really” releasing. Had it hit around March 2013 maybe it would have had a bigger impact but in Jan 2014 its pretty irrelevant.
