Also included is a bonus disc called “Fire Emblem Music Box” featuring rearrangements of ten tracks from both games in the style of a music box. The final item in the box is a “sound rubber strap”, a sort of rubber cushion that press a variety of sound effects from both games when you squeeze it.

As of this week, Famitsu has stopped tracking Wii U hardware sales numbers in Japan. With these numbers only being in the double digits each week lately, it seems like they have now reached a point where it’s no longer viable or possible to accurately track them each week. The other major sales figure tracker for the Japanese market, Media Create, stopped reporting Wii U numbers a while ago. As it stands, the final number of Wii U consoles sold in Japan, as reported  by Famitsu, is 3,303,541.
