The gang has reconvened for an emergency session. The truth is, the Wii U is in trouble, but the Splodinators think they know how to fix it. Have a listen to learn our secret techniques.
In the US in January, the Wii U sold about 57k. That’s compared to 281k for the 360 and scarily close to the Vita at 35k. In Japan, the Wii U is also hovering around Vita numbers, like 9-10k a week. Compare that to the 3DS, which sells 70-90k a week.
In North America, not a single game came out for the system in January. One came out in February (Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage 2). A few marginally noteworthy games are coming in March (Lego City: Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted U).
Rayman Legends has been pushed to September, and Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 still don’t have release dates.
Nintendo has announced that many of their biggest guns are on the way, but with little/no information or dates.
