Rayman Legends was the second best-selling Wii U title in Japan during the week of October 14th. Sadly, that’s not saying much. Dengeki Online reports (via ASCII Media Works) Rayman Legends sold just 1,435 copies in its debut week at retail.

Nintendo published Rayman Legends as a Japanese Wii U exclusive on October 17th. Dengeki’s data period ended on the 20th, so the site’s figure accounts for less than a full week of sales. Still, we can’t help but be disappointed, even though the game’s slow start is far from surprising.

Last year’s Need for Speed game, Most Wanted, landed on Wii U earlier this year as a late (but impressive) port. The same can’t be said of this year’s release, Rivals.

Rivals’ non-appearance on Wii U can be attributed to one reason: sales. Creative director Craig Sullivan provided the TSA with the following explanation regarding the decision to leave the platform out of the mix this year:

sonic lost world 3ds


“There is a lot of opportunity to engage with the younger audience on Sonic with the new entry-level Nintendo 2DS console. From launch to post launch we’ll be focused on kids. Peak season this year is without doubt a big celebration of Nintendo franchises and Sonic sits high on every platform gamers list of ‘must play’ titles.”

– Nintendo product manager Dani Robinson


Sonic: Lost World is out now in Europe, and on October 29th in North America.
