How to Survive’s launch came and gone in late October, but the game still hasn’t made its way to Wii U. The game’s absence has led some to question whether it’d ever land on the eShop, but we can confirm that 505 Games’ original plans haven’t changed.

The publisher told us that How to Survive is still very much in the works for Wii U. It remains in development, and according to 505 Games, will release on Nintendo’s console next year.

There hasn’t been much news about Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse as of late. Fortunately though, it looks like that’s already starting to change.

WayForward’s Matt Bozon posted a message on Twitter earlier this week saying than an update will be shared “soon”.

That was followed up a few hours ago with a new teaser image:


No one expected the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Ghosts to light the sales charts on fire. Yet it’s still quite disappointing to see that the game sold horribly in the US last month compared to other platforms.

Reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar” has shared information indicating that Call of Duty: Ghosts on Wii U accounted for less than 1% of the game’s total sales. Wii U’s share came in at 0.33% for the month of November, followed by the Xbox One with 6.42%, PlayStation 4 with 7.39%, PlayStation 3 with 30.42%, and Xbox 360 with 55.45%.

Again, Ghosts wasn’t expected to be a major sales success on Wii U. But given its apparent poor sales, you have to wonder if Activision will even bother bringing out next year’s Call of Duty for Nintendo’s console.

Several months ago, Nintendo announced its goal to sell 9 million Wii U units by the end of the 2014 fiscal year ending March 31. That’s always seemed like a lofty target given the system’s poor sales since launch, but it would now seem more difficult than ever to achieve.

IGN estimates that Wii U sales stand at about 4.3 million units worldwide to date. In order to hit 9 million, Nintendo would need to sell between 1.1 and 1.2 million consoles starting this month up through March.

EEDAR VP of Insights Jesse Divnich spoke with IGN about the Wii U sales – specifically competition from other new consoles, and how Nintendo’s own games may improve the system’s fortunes slightly. Divnich also said another price drop will likely take place again “once conditions are right”.
