  1. I’m surprised wiiu us still selling at any rate… Especially since Nintendo obviously isn’t supporting it.

    All those people who are kinda new to the system… To eventually find out Nintendo gave us the middle finger

  2. Paper Mario at number 3. When was the last time we had a Wii U game in the top 3? Oh, and good job Xbox One. Way to get back to triple digits! (Just a joke Xbox fans).

    1. Don’t worry. I expect it to drop down on the list next week then vanish the week after. Unless Japanese customers & fans are actually happy with the huge departure from the first two Paper Mario games.

      1. Now… Don’t shoot me… But I’ve never played a single Paper Mario haha. But I have read from you and many others that this game and Sticker Star both went way off from the first entries. So if that’s the case, I wouldn’t be surprised if your prediction comes true. Star Fox Zero, Triforce Heroes, Animal Crossing: Amiibo a Festival, and Metroid Prime: Federation Force. All have been the opposite of what fans want. All have had abysmal sales to my knowledge. So the trend certainly has a big chance of continuing.
