    1. Only fanboys. Salws are not up. Smashbros not even in the list. Wiiu has average between 9k and 12k all year. Atleats when pikmin 3 came out wiiu hit 20k for a week. This is bad news.

      Just how there is no mention on smash bros for wiiu sucks in sales in japan

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        Because it hasn’t been released for Japan yet…

        and sales have gone up since last week so that’s the good news…

      2. Didn’t you read the article? Next week Smash will be on the list since it isn’t available in Japan yet. But you prefer to play dumbass as if SCKR didn’t say that. Also prefer to play dumbass as if 3D World didn’t raise Wii U sales to over 90k in Japan much higher than Pikmin 3 did.

      3. Sales did go up, and Smash isn’t out there yet, so I have no idea what the fuck are you talking about… Hate Nintendo? Get the fuck out of here, loser!

      1. Officially licensed too! Easily some of the best designs Sony out out in years, can’t wait to get my hands on it (if possible, So few quantities D:)

  1. I wish that Sega would bring PSNova to west……….anyways this is your typical Japanese games list with Anime looking Jrpg´s mostly. LOL SenranKagura a fucking hentai creeps would only buy that shit.

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          I don’t know if I’ll agree with REHD but yes, a long with several Nintendo games and exclusives…

    1. What Pong said. There’s a difference. Of course, if you have a problem with Japanese animations, I can understand if you wouldn’t know the difference.

  2. Decent console sales, Smash will increase Wii U sales in Japan a little bit for next week’s chart report. Also, so many new releases, amazing…

  3. I have special secret information that I have secretly uncovered involving a Nintendo game. I cannot say how I have uncovered this intel but it is biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig! Are you ready for the secret intel?…………………………………well Nintendo has secretly been developing a new M****** game for the WII U. The game is a fps and they are shooting for the game to run 1080p ressolution at 60 frames per second. The game has been in development for some time and could release in late 2015/early 2016. The game is at around 35% compleation. The game is to have a vast world with experiences on the ground to experiences way up high. The game will have large open areas that allow players to move freely without being constrained by barrier’s. The team is striving to push the WII U to the limit with this game. I have seen an in game image and a concept photo and I have to say it looks amazing! Even at around 35% development. I cannot and will not show the images because I have promised myself not to save any data out of respect to Nintendo. The gate has been closed and there is no way of getting back in.

      1. Actually more like 4k at 10fps. There isn’t a rig out there that can run a triple A game on Ultra settings at 4k and expect to have any sort of smooth gameplay.

        4k is a fad. It’s just like 3d t.v.s, it will die out. It’s too expensive, and the jump from 1080p is almost unnoticeable. Who wants to spend an extra thousand dollars for t.v. for SLIGHTLY higher detail…. 4k will remain the max resolution for PC monitors, but it will never make it in t.v. land. Games will never be made with 4k in mind..

        1. Also you better be telling the truth. Otherwise at E3 I’ll remember what you said 6 months 3 days and 37 minutes you brought up this game. Then I’ll also bring up what Anelous said at the time as well which would then be 7 months , 4 weeks, 21hrs, 15minutes and 5 seconds from then.

          1. If its true it would be the first Metroid in HD which is a great beginning to the return of the Prime style gameplay.

        2. According to Black bond anything under 60fps is unplayable. That’s what he said 1 year 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, 18hours, 41minutes and 35 seconds ago. He also made it seem a PC is powerful to get 60fps or more. Hollow grape also said if you like graphics buy a PC. Now all of a sudden a PC isn’t impressive.

          1. Resolution=/= graphics.
            It depends on the game. For instance, trying to run something like Crysis 3 in 4K though which is a very demanding game, you would not get 60FPS. And yes, PC still does have the best graphics. You cannot get 4K 60FPS gaming yet because the graphics cards we have today are not strong enough to run this generation’s games like that yet. Even with some demanding games from last gen they still struggle to get 4K 60FPS. If they did come out with a card that was capable of easily plowing through all games with that kind of power, I guarantee you it would not be cheap. We already have high end cards that go $700- $1000+ that still can’t do it yet…

        3. technically 720p and 1080p was a fad too. The technology with the new resolutions was out long before it was mainstream. It was out in the 90s for those that didn’t know.

          1. high def resolutions and high hz rates were in pc crt monitors long before a tv. hd gaming has been around for a long time they even went higher than 1080p in the 90s. most those old crts still compete with todays top tech. nothing has really changed all that much besides getting thinner.

    1. According to Anelous its impossible to get 1080p 60fps on Wii U. He said Smash has it because the background isn’t accessible when playing. He also said it’s not a lot going on in smash which is why it got 1080p 60fps. Also he said Wii U can’t handle realistic graphics and according to him it was a fact Wii U can’t do realistic graphics at 1080p60fps. He said this 6 days, 19hours 45min. And 27 days ago. Also Hollwgrape agreed that Wii U can’t do 1080p 60fps with realistic graphics neither. But when Stranganlog broke the inside of the Wii U grapehollow was no where to be found to back his claims. This happened 3 weeks, 4 days, 12 hours 57min and 33 seconds ago.

      1. That’s because it CAN’T. The Wii U cannot run demanding games at 1080P 60FPS. Because it has weaker hardware inside it. Developers would have to downgrade their game to get it running on the Wii U. Just look at all the third party games that are released on the Wii U and compare them to the PS4 versions. Why is it that all the PS4 versions have higher resolution and better graphics? Because it has the stronger hardware. That’s why. And no, I’m not saying the PS4 can run every game at 1080P 60FPS. But it can still run games better than the Wii U can. And that’s a fact.

            1. I’ve tried back when he was needlessly bashing the Wii U before the reveal of 8-player smash in SSB 4 Wii U, and it never worked. So why would I be able to get him to do so now? Besides, with all the Sony & Microsoft fanboys coming here bashing anything Nintendo, I don’t feel like stopping him from pissing them off even if I could convince him to stop. lol

        1. But it CAN! lol. You call it downgrading, I call it optimising. Developers are lazy! All those high demanding games are living above thier means. Nintendo understands this. Ubisoft, for example, does not. Ubisoft will put graphics above gameplay. And most other developers are the same. The Wii U is powerful enough to run beautiful games at full 1080p 60fps. And Smash Bros. is a demanding game, and it’s proof that good development equals good quality.

          A good developer (Nintendo) could easily make a realistic looking game that runs at 60fps 1080p. You see, the reason most 3rd party games have trouble doing this is becouse they will not sacrifice graphics for gameplay. If 3rd party developers would bring the graphics down a notch, every game on the ps4 would be 1080p 60fps. And every port onto the Wii U could also be optimised to run 1080p 60fps. The Wii U is perfectly capable of it. Yes, the ps4 is more powerful than the Wii U, obviously, and it can run higher detailed games better. But the developers are the reason you dont see 3rd party games on the Wii U at 1080p 60fps. And that goes for the Ps4 aswell. Sometimes I wish Nintendo would just make a realistic game at 1080p 60fps to shut the haters up.

          1. Yeah, that was my point. They would have to downgrade the game. They’d have to sacrifice the graphics in order to achieve a better framerate and resolution. And then the game would not look as good as they want it to. It may not matter to you, but trust me. I know a lot of people that upgraded from PS3 to PS4 just because of the graphics. Even at school, I heard some guy talking about if GTA V was on PS4 how much better the graphics would look. Fast forward one year later and bam. I bet he’s one of the people the people that own GTA V on PS4 now. That’s how the developers make their money nowadays. Lol cause people like him. :P

            1. Realistic graphics is the new thing that will probably lead to another video game crash just like whatever the hell Atari did wrong to lead to the first one. People will eventually get tired or burned out by realistic graphics after realistic graphics after realistic graphics if this trend of them continues. It’s just a question of when. Variety is what keeps things turning. In a way, realistic graphics is just a fad that will eventually die out as all fads do. Especially when said fads are seen every damn time you turn around.

            2. You wouldn’t have to downgrade very much. But yea, your right, most gamers today put graphics above all else. And honestly I like good graphics in my games too. But I would rather have a good looking game at 1080p 60fps, than a Amazing looking game at 720p 25fps. But thats just me.

          1. hell yeah! I heard attack on titian was going be Japanese exclusive. That’s the reason why I bought a couple.

    1. Ignoring he said the release date is late 2015 to early 2016 3 hours, 25mins and 5 seconds ago. Nintendo plans to release Splatoons early 2015. So how can it be splatoons?

  4. Agree, FPS on wii u is meh…. Though a Nintendo developed FPS would have my attention. As long as mario isn’t in it cuz that would just be wrong …

    1. We need more FPS adventure, the funnest part of those is that Japanese people are so good at making imaginary worlds.
