With Pikmin 3 (finally) launching in Japan, Nintendo are obviously hoping that the latest exclusive to the Wii U’s tiny library will begin to shift the system into homes across the globe. And maybe they’re right!
According to Japanese store Tsutaya, Pikmin 3 has already pushed Wii U consoles through the tills, as the companies director of the game rental planning group, Taketo Matsuo, has stated:
“Pikmin 3, that came out nine years after Pikmin 2, is having a really good start. Sales at Tsutaya are comparable to the release of Super Mario Bros U and have driven greater sales of Wii U units.”
As our source for this story points out, New Super Mario Bros. U shifted 163,528 units in its first launch week. Could this be a sign for better experiences on the horizon if you’re a Nintendo fan?
