    That’s quite the jump for the Wii U, wonder if it’ll keep those numbers up or if it’ll drop back down again within a week or two. When’s the next big release after Pikmin?

    • shogunknight

      That would be W101 i think, not sure for japan

      • McPoo

        Oh yeah, forgot about that. I imagine that’ll give it a big boost too, people seem quite excited for it.

  • shogunknight

    Good boost for the wiiU, seeing this means the wiiU may actually do good numbers by next year, luigiU didnt do great though. Vita and other games did ok

    • Agent721

      Remember that Luigi U is also available for download, probably for less dough, cutting into the retail sales.

    • SuperLuigi

      Did luigi u count digital? It is dlc so I would imagine not everyone bought the physical disc? I am always lost on these sale charts haha.

      • shogunknight

        Probably not, but i doubt it would be higher than the physical sales. Once the wiiU gets a steady trend of sales like these in japan, it would do just fine, ill like to see its sales next week :-)

  • Locksus

    This is really great news. Now that Wii U is getting at least one great exclusive game each month, it could really boost its sales even more, which in turn might interest 3rd parties.

    Software drives hardware, obviously.
