Nintendo has had a tough time moving Wii U units since launch, selling only 160,000 systems during the April-June quarter and 3.61 million systems overall. Asda, a Wal-Mart subsidiary and the United Kingdom's second-largest supermarket, stopped stocking the Wii U in its stores this week.
Nintendo plans to sell 9 million Wii U units before March 2014. The company is hoping to spur console sales by releasing numerous first-party titles in the coming months, including The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Super Mario 3D World, and Wii Fit U.
