Retro City Rampage WiiWare sales still have a ways to go before Vblank can earn revenue

Vblank Entertainment shared a sales update on Retro City Rampage’s WiiWare version yesterday while also asking fans for their support.
Unlike the eShop, Nintendo implemented much stricter rules on the Wii Shop Channel. These harsh guidelines extend to payments for developers. According to Vblank, Retro City Rampage is still 750 units away in North America (850 units in Europe) from reaching the threshold needed for the studio to receive revenue from the WiiWare version. WiiWare titles need to hit a certain number of sales in their first two years before developers are compensated, and at this rate, Vblank believes this will be tough to accomplish with Retro City Rampage.
