No matter how good or innovative a game system may be, if there are no good games available, there’s no way it can sell nicely. The Wii U sales situation has been pretty bad almost everywhere but things are starting to change rapidly, at least in Europe: yesterday it’s been reported that the console sales have increased by 125% last week in the United Kingdom. Today a new report came in from Nintendo France, stating that sales have improved in France as well.
Nintendo France’s Philippe Lavoue confirmed in a recent interview that the system’s sales tripled the week of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate release: Lavoue notes how games like MH3 will help accelerate the Wii U’s sales. Things will definitely be even better once some original games will get released in the future: let’s not forget that MH3: Ultimate is an updated version of a game released a couple of years back.
