Wii U sells 308,570 units after two days in Japan


It's being reported that Wii U sold 308,570 units in just two days in Japan.

Nintendo's new system launched in Japan on December 8, although these sales numbers also include December 9.

The top selling game was New Super Mario Bros. U with 170,563 units sold. Next up was Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate selling 110,159 units, while Nintendo Land sold 78,461 units.

NintendoLand was not bundled the Deluxe Set in Japan, due to purchasers getting access to the Dragon Quest X beta instead.


Thanks, Siliconera.

Seems like a pretty low software attach rate for the console considering that outside of the top three titles every other launch game did extremely poor numbers.

From what I've gathered elsewhere the Monster Hunter 3 units wasn't including the Monster Hunter bundle they have there.

Pretty good figures considering the recession I'd say.

Still a attach rate of more than one gamer per console sold and that's just the top 3 games out of 20 or so games Nintendo have already said they only need to sell one game for the console and it makes a profit. The PS3 game attach rate was below consolse sold due to people buying it in the early days as a cheaper blu-ray player.

Plus the PS3 was selling at a much greater loss. :)

Very impressive for a system that repeats mario every few years, however the controller has to go someway towards drawing people in to buy a wii U.

I thought Monster Hunter was announced for March? It was in the most recent Nintendo Direct for Europe.
