Rumor – Wii Fit sells 650,000 copies in NA on first day
In most instances, Nintendo sales figures are generally accepted only when Nintendo reports the numbers themselves. VGChartz reports, however, that Wii Fit has sold 650,000 copies in its first day in the market, providing Nintendo with $60 million. Although it allegedly did not perform as well as Mario Kart Wii, Wii Fit had a stellar first day performance nonetheless. Given the popularity of Wii Fit, the 650,000 mark is not out of the question, though it’s best to take this bit of news with a grain of salt until Nintendo confirms this news.
Oddworld game in development, no platform announced
Posted on 11 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 2 Comments
The Oddworld series has quite a history. Games have appeared on the PlayStation, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and Xbox. A new game has been discovered and is currently in development. Although there is no firm platform announced, there are quite a few details on the title. There’s a new 3D system in the works which allows for a 1:1 ratio for cinematic-like animation quality. Also, there is a hint that when the game releases, there will be episodic content to accompany it as well. Because the latest iteration of Oddworld released on the Xbox, the new game points to a 360 release. However, based on the history of the series, it’s possible that this title will release on either the PlayStation 3 or Wii.
Wii sets new software sales record, overtakes PS2
Since the launch of the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii, Nintendo has been king of the sales figures. Almost every month, it seems Nintendo has yet another statistic to provide the gaming industry with. Nintendo has more figures to report and the news is quite big. According to the big N, in the first 18 months of the Wii’s lifespan, 50 million games were sold to consumers, not including Wii Sports or downloadable titles. This statistic has apparently surpassed the PS2, in which Nintendo claims only sold 42 million titles in its first 18 months. Compared to other systems, the Xbox 360 sold 30 million, the Xbox at approximately 28 million and the PlayStation 3 at around 20 million.
Kuju developing a casual title for Wii
“We’re working on our first title with a publisher, which we can’t really announce anything about other than it’s a casual title for Wii — when I say casual I always think it sounds like Scrabble or something like that but I mean casual like Wii Sports — and that’s going great and we’ve been looking at a couple of studios for acquisition, which I can’t really say anything about either! But if they make financial sense we’ll go for them….It’s an adaptation of a coin-op… That’s not even out itself.” – John Kavanagh, head of Kuju America
This is really quite a different pace for Kuju. The development company is known for its Battalion Wars games on the GameCube and Wii and bother are pretty hardcore. The casual game is being development by Kuju America (a new studio was recently opened), though the Kuju team in the UK is involved in the project.
