Wii U sales saw a sharp increase in Japan last week, thanks to new bundles from Nintendo, Media Create reports. In total, Nintendo sold 47,000 Wii U consoles in the week of December 7th, which is up 15,000 units — a 50% increase in sales. This is largely thanks to two new bundles: a Splatoon bundle and a Super Mario Maker bundle. Those two bundles sold 36,000 units combined last week. Splatoon has been a big success and system seller for Nintendo. Recently, the company announced that Splatoon had sold 1 million copies in Japan. The Wii U has sold 10.7 million units worldwide as of September 30, 2015. Splatoon has sold over 2.5 million units to date. local_offer Nintendo wii u wii u sales stars Further Reading Switch vs Wii U game case size comparison Miyamoto dismisses the Wii U as a “nece 6 reasons to grab a Nintendo Switch before March 6 reasons to skip the Nintendo Switch for now Nintendo Switch Amazon Pre-Order Watch the Nintendo Switch reveal live!
