Pikmin 3 Is Apparently Selling Well In Japan

My Nintendo News


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.”

Thanks, Kallum and Gaminglord

Mario Kart Series Producer Hopes For A New F-Zero Game

My Nintendo News


Mario Kart series producer Hideki Konno has revealed that he hopes there will be a new F-Zero game. When asked why Nintendo decided to make Mario Kart 8 instead of a new F-Zero entry, Konno replied by saying the company wants to draw consumers’ attention toward its latest console. “We always have a Mario Kart per console, so we wanted to make a new entry to interest more people further in the new console,” explained Konno. “But I hope that there will be a new F-Zero.”

Mario Kart 8 launches exclusively for Wii U in 2014. While they hope for an announcement of a new F-Zero game for Wii U, fans can get their F-Zero fix by downloading the original F-Zero from the Nintendo eShop. Or they can play Captain Falcon’s Twister Race – a mini-game included in Nintendo Land that’s based on F-Zero.

Currently, EA has no games in development for the Wii U, though they have said that they would develop games if a substantial user base existed. Here’s what Peter Moore had to say on the issue of the Wii U’s online engagement:

“We were there with four games for them [at launch]. It’s been a disappointment when you look at sell-through and, as a company, we have to be very judicious where we deploy our resources. The lack of online engagement that we see on Wii U [is troubling]. It’s so…
