Wow. So yesterday we reported on a single Japanese retailer’s sales for The Wonderful 101 in the region, with that retailer describing abysmally low sales. It looks like sales across the entirety of Japan were equally as bad, with the title selling only 5,258 copies during its first week, according to Media Create numbers. The Wii U also dropped in sales figures, only managing to sell around 7,000 units compared to 12,000 last week.
This is pretty bad for the region, but remember Nintendo was expecting low sales in the region as they allotted only 30,000 copies for Japan during distribution.
