Wii U

During the ending of Xenoblade Chronicles X, a certain character is shown, but only very briefly. The model is essentially obscured and players can’t really get a look at what this person looks like.

Now through datamining, TorchicFlame has managed to extract the full model. We have a couple of pictures attached below (proceed at your own risk!).

It’s unclear just how much Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze sold during its first week in the UK. However, we do know that it was towards the top of the charts.

GamesIndustry adds that the new Switch version “already accounts for nearly 17% of the total number of copies the game has sold in the UK (physical units only). Week one sales of the Switch version were 53.7% higher than week one sales of the Wii U version (although Switch does have a considerably higher install base).”

We should have an idea as to how Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze performed on Switch in Japan this week. As for the US, we’ll need to wait for next month’s NPD report.
