Wonderful 101 makes a poor start in Japan

Game sells less than 5,300 copies to debut at No.14 on the chart

The Wonderful 101 has made a poor start in Japan, selling fewer than 5,300 copies to enter the weekly software chart at No.14.

According to Media Create data published on NeoGAF, Wii U had an installed base of 1,055,000 in Japan as of August 25, meaning just 0.5 per cent of console owners picked up a copy of the Wii U exclusive game last week.
