  • hi v3.0

    565 people got the Wii U..

    • Tlink7

      Maybe somebody reaaaalllyyyy wanted Smash for Wii U xD


        or zelda

  • Exposer

    Too bad for I am Setsuna and Romance of Three Kingdoms but maybe it was like that because they are ports.

    • hi v3.0

      Both of them sold less than 5k copies…sad

      • Tyler Kincaid

        I’m pretty sure those were digital only games.

        • Roto Prime

          Hard copy in Japan for both.

          • Tyler Kincaid

            Dang! I guess we now know what happens when you port of a niche game that late over.

          • R.Z.

            If you feel like contributing to the sales via import, the japanese cartridge has all the western languages. Just saying.

        • hi v3.0

          Not in Japan

      • Exposer

        How much sold I am Setsuna for Ps4? I dont know about Romance, but Setsuna was on Sony’s console.

    • kurodo

      I think Setsuna has a very small number on the stores. For example, on the Horuhe’s pictures, always has just 1 setsuna on display (the same for Disgaea and Nobunaga). Even on online stores like play-asia this games is sold out or have 1 or 2 copies (I plan to import Setsuna on Play-Asia because I want the physical copy). imo

      • Exposer

        Too bad, honestly, hopefully this dosent mean anything bad.
        Disgaea was a Japanese Switch launch?

        • kurodo

          yes. Accordinhg to famitsu, both sold ~5k (20-40% of the shipping). I estimate ~ 15-17k was shipped to the stores. so the expectation was low, anyway.

          • Exposer

            Mmm…Yeah, maybe…Hopefully they will mantain their support in the future.

  • Roto Prime

    Let the Nintendo Switch dominance begin! “A hand full of people in a leaky boat are going to save the world”……”Exactly” !

    • J.j. Barrington

      But this ain’t Mortal Kombat. Nintendo doesn’t have Liu Kang.

      • Roto Prime


  • link2metroid

    I expect a massive drop in sales for the Switch next week.

    • Switchling

      Obviously. They’re sold out.

      • Ser2k2

        Don’t bother talking to him. Most of the time his comments are negative.

        • Usama Notkani

          Him and Hermione they should marry each other to spread the trollness across all Nintendo sites

  • Fyrestone

    What happened with the Xbone last week selling 4x as many as normal?

  • Ser2k2
  • GoldenTriforce

    Bomberman and Dragon Quest numbers are a bit low but not horrible considering the install base.

    • Jon Turner

      Well BOMERBMAN is relatively new and niche, but DQH’s numbers are subjective. The game was kinda pricey at the start, but it’s also a launch title.

      • How is Bomberman new and niche? Wasn’t it getting games on the DS even? I think it’s another case of steady decline, sadly. I hope it performed better in the West.

      • Hexodious

        Bomberman has been going since the 80s, lol
        It’s just niche

    • silkylove

      Was thinking about Bomberman (love the series) but couldn’t pull the trigger. Not enough content to justify that price.

  • Tlink7

    Nintendo Switched up the charts it seems

    • Drybones08

      Well, their new system has a lot of in-Tegra-ty.

  • nekoknight

    Japanese sales to date:
    PS Vita (released 12.17.2011): 5,199,555
    New 3DS (released 10.11.2014): 4,991,743
    PS4 (released 02.22.2014): 4,425,877*
    Wii U (released 12.08.2012): 3,229,068
    2DS: 360,009
    SWITCH: 329,152
    *includes Pro sales

    Now that the Switch is finally out, I will no longer be tracking Wii U sales from this point on.

    • Kenshin0011

      Why not keep tracking Wii U so we can see when the Switch surpasses it?

      • Jacob Groves

        He is just PS fanboy. 🙂

        • Mystic Panda

          Perfect example of the gaming community of this day and age.

        • Wanderlei

          Yeah he tracks ps4/ps4pro combined but complete ignores 3DS (20 million+) and tracks New 3DS separate. He only wants the most favorable numbers for Sony and least favorable for Nintendo. Its silly and pointless if you are not following consistent methodically with all.

    • Usama Notkani

      Please keep tracking Wii u so we see how long it takes for switch to cross all these. New 3ds will also cross vita in its strongest market which is just amazing

  • awng781

    Good launch.

    Looks like the Switch revived Bomberman.

    • Oh, wow. I didn’t know the sales were typically that low; I take back an above comment I made.

      I think the numbers are low, but not bad for a game of its size and audience.

      Thanks for sharing that! (And yay for the Switch helping the series!)


    Good for Nier

  • Sick-Dogg-OCMW

    Good numbers for the SWITCH.

  • nekoknight

    In my previous post, I mentioned that I would no longer be tracking Wii U sales. But if you would like me to continue tracking Wii U sales, please let me know by giving this post a vote up. Thank you.

    • And many thanks to you for all of your work in keeping track of things and sharing with us!

  • I’m so excited for when they restock the Switch and to see how it performs then as well. I think I heard something about as early as (this) Sunday? I’m very curi-o-s~!

    • R.Z.

      I’m so excited for when they restock the Switch so maybe I can get one finally … >_<
      (over in the EU there should be new stock on friday, but it seems to be pre-sold out mostly already)

      • Oh, good luck! I hope you can get one as soon as possible~!
