Major japanese retailer and rental chain Tsutaya says that Pikmin 3 is the best-selling game this week in their stores. Taketo Matsuo, Tsutaya’s Director of the Game Rental Planning Group, says that sales of Pikmin 3 are similar to those of New Super Mario Bros U and are helping drive hardware sales at the retail chain. We should get official confirmation on Pikmin 3 and Wii U hardware sales in Japan when we get this week’s Media Create sales figures.
“Pikmin 3, that came out nine years after Pikmin 2, is having a really good start. Sales at Tsutaya are comparable to the release of Super Mario Bros U and have driven greater sales of Wii U units.”
