Wii U got off to a good-but-not-great start when it launched in the UK a little over ten days ago. However, recent game sales charts for Britain are not being so kind to Nintendo’s new console and its games. In fact, no Wii U exclusive titles have managed to breach the top 20 in sales. Two Wii U exclusives did get into the top 40, with Nintendo Land at number 26, and New Super Mario Bros. U coming in at 36.
Why such low game sales? It may be due to the still small Wii U userbase in the UK. However, many retailers have plenty of Wii U systems in stock around the country. Perhaps the Wii U will receive a much-needed sales boost in the UK as the holiday shopping season continues.
On the plus side, quite a few Nintendo 3DS titles are in top 40 of UK game sales. New Super Mario Bros. 2 is at number 17, and other titles like Professor Layton, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and Mario Kart 7 are in the top 40.
