Source: My Nintendo News, S.E.L.L charts

Sure it's nowhere near as high as Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Saints Row IV, or Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but it's number one on the Wii U charts, outselling New Super Luigi U and Pikmin 3. Not bad for one part of Europe.

Thoughts?

Good for that, but I definitely won't pick it up with my current backlog. Hell, I'm still working on pikmin 3

I feel sorry for people who essentially threw their money away buying a WiiU. Nintendo has to step their game up and start adopting more Mature titles, as well as continuing to produce Mario and Zelda. They're missing out on a huge portion of the market and becoming increasingly irrelevant.

Good for the Wii U. It shouldn't try compete directly with PS4 or X1.

Because god forbid Wii U owners have something to play.

Why should they adopt more "mature" titles when damn near every title they tried adopting backfired on them? I want more hope that they'll try again, but the reaction over Bayonetta 2 a year ago isn't letting me (that and it's other reasons for being an inevitable bomb).

They need to get more support from developers. The whole "kid friendly" image is dying. Sales numbers don't lie. Honestly, I don't even know if Nintendo is in the same league as Sony or Microsoft recently. Their products have just become a joke, and they totally rely on rehashes of Mario, Zelda and Super Smash Bros. to keep their consoles alive.

For better or worse, we need companies that aren't in the same league because we'd have a boring as hell industry. And if the "family friendly" is dying, why in the hell are Nintendo's 3DS games still selling so well?

What are you talking about? Mario, Zelda and Smash Bros. have always sold extremely well. And there is only one Smash Bros. per console, with significint improvements each time. It isn't a rehash at all.

It's not a different game formula though. What I meant is that rather than relying on Zelda, Mario and SSB as a crutch, Nintendo needs to branch out and start looking at working with devs to adopt other series' to their console to start being taken seriously.

Nintendo has a great product in terms of handheld devices, sure. But I'm talking consoles. Look at WiiU sales in comparison to Xbox or PS3 sales.

I've never seen more ignorance spewing from one kid in a long, long time. And considering we're on the internet that's saying quite a lot (or little) of yourself.

Well that's good for Wii U fans, but at this point I doubt I'll be playing any Wii U for a long time.

I've about to sell a couple 100 games to make room for my PS4 and XBox One titles. I have a whole chest full of PS1 games that have to go bye bye.

Well, I always seen France as the most "open" European country when it comes to Japanese games and stuff in general.

The second biggest "pro-Japan" Euro country would have to be Italy, where Anime used to be highly popular too.

If they enjoy the system and it's games - why so?

Not everyone has interest to play the biggest "mainstream" titles or they play them on other systems instead...

that article is a joke and isn't very forthcoming with details, for all we know it's topping Wii U charts with 1000 copies sold

It's not a different game formula though. What I meant is that rather than relying on Zelda, Mario and SSB as a crutch, Nintendo needs to branch out and start looking at working with devs to adopt other series' to their console to start being taken seriously.

You mean get more third party support? Yeah that would help, but they don't really need it exactly. Their systems do sell very well, and they have really good first party support. Sure the Wii U may be struggling, but most new systems do. And the Wii had a lot more great games aside from Mario, Zelda, and Smash Bros. That isn't all they have.

For example:

Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn

Meroid Prime 3 (And trilogy)

Sonic Colours

Red Steel 2

Goldeneye

Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition

 

That's just a quick list I came up with right now. There are more. And since I am half expecting to be called a Nintendo fanboy, let me just say this: i don't have a Wii U, and I don't think I have touched my Wii at all this month. Not because it's lacking games, but because my 360 has the games I've been wanting to play lately. And the game I have been playing most this month is also on the Wii U. That being Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge.

Hopefully they dont figure sales till after the holidays, with November less than two months away I'm porbably not the only one holding out for a sale or the like. Not to mention I have a backlog and cant justify adding a nother game to the pile.

Glad The Wonderful 101 is doing well somewhere. All of PlatinumGames' games deserve a lot more sales though.

Nice. Make sure you play Wiimote and Nunchuck though. And if you can, have a spot for your gamepad nearby (on your lap or in front on a coffee table). Best way to play by far.
