Super Mario 3D World hasn't captured the interest of gamers as much as it deserves and Knack outsold Super Mario 3D World.Super Mario 3D World is not going to be the Wii U's savour. Despite many - and deservedly so - praising Nintendo's reimagining of its mascot, the initial sales figures do not look good. You don't even need to lose yourself in thousands of numbers or statistics either. You just need to know it was outsold by Knack…. also XBone and PS4 EACH sold more in 24 hours than the Wii U did in 9 months.
Many of the bigger third-party publishers have expressed their disappointment with the console, and even Ubisoft - who used to be so desperate for success on Nintendo devices they made Red Steel 2 - have taken a step back. ZombiU may've been an intriguing experiment, but ultimately no one cared.
Does this spell the end for Nintendo's latest console?...............probably yes.
