Wii U has seen improving sales over the last week – selling upwards of 200,000 units globally. Anyone who’s seen the previous charts will know that that’s a great improvement, however are we on the brink of a reversal of roles where the Wii U is concerned?
The Wii U’s sales seemed to have turned around quite a bit, as the system has seen a 75% sales spike since October. The Wii U and iPad are Twitter’s most discussed Christmas presents for kids.
Attack on Titan The Last Wings of Mankind has some brand new Levi DLC footage. The game is pretty impressive for being on 3DS. Check out the high flying action past the link.

Masahiro Sakurai has posted a new assist trophy for Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. Players will be able to unleash a Majora’s Mask Skull Kid assist trophy on foes. He is not playable, but he can do some damage.
Square Enix has released a brand spanking new trailer for Dragon Quest X Version 2. And for some reason they won’t announce a Western release date…..watch the trailer below. The game’s fidelity looks great.
That’s why he wants Nintendo to go third party. He can get a PS4 and Xbox One for himself but a video game console for his kid? No Way! Seriously, how do you rob your daughter of an experience you enjoyed as a kid when you can more than afford to provide that for her!?!?!? Make sure to subscribe to TheRealAtomicToaster on YouTube. He makes excellent content.

Toys R Us will be having a special on Pokemon Y for the Nintendo 3DS on December 6th and 7th. 3DS owners can pick up Nintendo’s masterpiece for $19.99. A rare occasion, as Nintendo games almost never go directly on sale.
I don’t want to toot my own horn……but I’m going to. The popular gaming site, ‘The Escapist,’ used my Xenoblade Chronicles sales article in one of their stories today. This is the same website popular game journalist Jim Sterling works for. I’m honored and happy that they would use my piece as reference. I want to thank all of you, the PE faithful, that spread the word of the Playeressence.
Even with the launch of the Xbox One and the PS4, the 3DS is still the system to own worldwide. VGChartz is reporting the 3DS shifted nearly 1.3 million units last week. Selling more than 795,981 units in North America alone. Wow, just wow. Why does Iwata still have his job? Nintendo should be putting their old games on smartphones, so people don’t HAVE to buy their consoles to play their games. The Wii U isn’t doing to shabby either.
This isn’t 100%, but I think it goes in line with all the reports i’ve been posting on Playeressence. VGChartz is reporting the Wii U sold 197,597 units in North America last week, outselling the PS4 in North America. Add in Europe and Japan, and the Wii U sold over 270,000K for the week. Nintendo still has a lot of work to do. But it seems like their marketing and big games like Super Mario 3D World and New Super Mario Bros are carrying the system.
Nintendo has published their eShop offering for the 3DS and Wii U this week. Get the full list below.
We petition and nothing comes out of it most of the time. Operation Rainfall was an anomaly at best, but what is the solution for the division between Gamers and Developers/Companies? Money. Or at least, the lack of promise where it’s concerned.

This week’s Media Create sales charts are in. The Wii U and 3DS are on an absolute tear in Japan. The 3DS tacked on another 108,373 units for the week. While the Wii U topped all other home consoles selling 28,518 units. Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai 2 topped the software, selling 88,708 units on the 3DS. Get the full software and hardware numbers below.
The Mario & Luigi Wii U bundle seems to be one of the most popular bundles from Nintendo, as the set is sold out on Best Buy.com and is one of the top sellers on ShopTo. This follows multiple reports of other retailers selling out of the bundle as well. It will be interesting to see exactly how much the Wii U did sell through Christmas, since its their last one. Thanks Gryphonofmight and timg57867 for the tips!
Nintendo of America’s Twitter has shown off the first footage of Wii Sports Club Golf. Watch the footage here.
Convenient excuse after convenient excuse, broken promise after broken promise and no one is seeing the pattern. In the past, blame could well be placed on Nintendo’s shoulders and not a soul would argue against it. But now, there are no more excuses, as Nintendo fans we’ve seen it all, but we’ve finally hit the bottom of the barrel, I think.
