Call of Duty: Ghosts launched in Japan last week. How’d the Wii U version do? Not too well, though it did do slightly better than other prominent Wii U titles.

Sales reported by Dengeki (tracked by ASCII Works) indicate that the game sold 2,508 units in its first few days on the market. Interestingly, that’s better the debuts of both Rayman Legends and Sonic Lost World.

Nintendo has released a new infographic highlighting impressive stats about Pokemon X/Y. You can find it above.

Monster Hunter 4 has now sold over three million copies in Japan. The game is selling at a rate of roughly 40,000 copies each week.

Famitsu wrote in its latest issue:

“With the tenth anniversary of the franchise approaching, 2014 should be an even more exciting year for MH than ever before. MH4 continues to generate a lot of attention in the market, and we can expect sales to continue going forward. Going into the holiday season, the newly-improved MH4 will likely have even more of a performance to show us.”

I’m assuming the latest news coming from Famitsu is different from Capcom’s announcement last month. The publisher had announced that Monster Hunter 4 shipments had exceeded three million. Famitsu’s article seems to apply to actual sales rather than shipments.

In the latest trailer for One Piece: Unlimited World Red, Namco Bandai announced that the Unlimited series as a whole has sold over one million copies in Japan. The Wii titles One Piece: Unlimited Adventure (2007), One Piece Unlimited Cruise: Episode 1 (2008), and One Piece Unlimited Cruise: Episode 2 (2009) reached the mark collectively. Namco Bandai didn’t make it entirely clear if the 3DS ports were included.
