Nintendo: The Masters of my Wallet….Over $400 for ‘Smash Bros’ in 2014

Smash Bros Amiibo

Somehow, Nintendo has convinced me to spend nearly $400 on one game franchise this year. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS launched on October 3rd for $39.99. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U launches on November 21st, so I decided to pick up the Smash Bros. Wii U GameCube Controller bundle for $99.99. In order to enhance my Smash Bros experience, I decided to get all 12 Amiibo’s for $143.88. Then Nintendo just announced an additional 6 Amiibo launching this December for $71.94. So when you total everything up I’m buying pertaining to Smash Bros, it comes out to $355.80….. without tax. Nintendo, the masters of my wallet.

Bayonetta 2 Debut Sales in Japan are 7x Higher than The Wonderful 101

Bayonetta 2 vs Wonderful 101

Despite the major media unfairly singling out Bayonetta 2’s Japanese sales (despite not doing that for a multitude of PS4 games). A little fact that was purposely ignored by many is that Bayonetta 2 actually sold 7x the amount the Wonderful 101 did at launch. The Wonderful 101 debut sales were around 5,200 units. Bayonetta 2 debuted with a little under 39,000 units sold in about two days.

Lifetime to date sales in Japan for the Wonderful 101 site at around 53,000 units in Japan. Bayonetta 2 will surpass the lifetime to date sales of The Wonderful 101 soon, if it hasn’t done so already. Make sure to check out my multi-part video series where I exposed the evidence bias against Nintendo with major media sites
