Sales correspondent David Gibson has detained some of the finer details for Pikmin 3. David is reporting that Pikmin 3 sold 102K with another 91K in stock, full details past the link.
Here is the direct tweet from Gibson:
“Pikmin 3 sells 102k in 2 days in Japan but leaves another 91k on the shelves,becomes #3 biggest seller in wk1 after NSMU and MH3HD for WiiU”
So Pikmin 3 did well but wasn’t a complete sellout. However this was only collected on 2 days of sales data to it is fairly impressive to say the least. Pikmin 3 is the number 3 biggest selling game in the first week of the Wii U, after Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and New Super Mario Bros U.
Software sales on the Wii U jumped up to 148,000 units for the week which was the highest total since the 4th week of the Wii U launch. For comparison, New Super Mario Bros U sold through 70% by the last week of December.
The best thing about these numbers are that it’s only tracking two days of sales data on the market. We have to wait and see Nintendo’s combined forcasts for digital and physical sales, along with more time on the market.Check out the Furious EA – The Worst Shin Megami Tensei X Francis’ Youtube!
