The Wonderful 101 shifts just 5,258 copies in Japan


Having already seen a disappointing start within the UK charts, The Wonderful 101 has performed less then favourably within Japan too.

According to Media Create’s compiled sales data, the Wii U exclusive shifted just 5,258 copies that saw it only able to land a fourteenth place in the Japanese software chart.

We absolutely loved the game, as you can see within our review, so it’s a shame to see that it failing to make a more significant mark at retail.

Nintendo will be looking to secure more success in North America, with PlatinumGames Hideki Kamiya presenting an “Inside The Wonderful 101″ session at PAX Prime this weekend.
