Yesterday’s Media Create sales figures from Japan gave us hope for the Wii U’s revival in the market after a considerable slum. Now, it has been revealed that Pikmin 3 managed to shift over half of its stock in just two days. The real-time strategy game sold 53 per cent of its entire stock in the two days prior to the release of the Media Create figures.
According to a tweet published by senior research analyst David Gibson based on Enterbrain sales figures, Pikmin 3 sold 102,000 copies out of its 193,400 total shipped units. The Wii U title also places as the third best-selling game in its first week, just behind New Super Mario Bros. U and Monster Hunter 3 HD in Japan. Next week’s Media Create figures should prove interesting, however. Do you think Pikmin 3 can hold onto the top spot again? Let us know in the comments below.
“Pikmin 3 sells 102k in 2 days in Japan but leaves another 91k on the shelves, becomes #3 biggest seller in wk1 after NSMU and MH3HD for WiiU”. – David Gibson, Senior Research Analyst
