My kids are super excited to play it. They loved the pikmin games in Nintendoland.

I have been waiting a long time for Pikmin 3, bring it on Nintendo.

Hmm. I wonder if this will carry throughout the week. These two-day figures have me quite curious (and a little excited, admittedly).

Ascii Media Works:
Pikmin ------ 516,000
Pikmin 2 ------ 532,000
Pikmin 3 ------ 93,560

In Japan, Nintendo dropped advertisement bombs for Pikmin 3 on TV and movie theaters.
Considering that, its sales are a bit weak.
And it's noticeable that Pikmin 3's contribution to boost the console sales is not enough (+15k units).
The effect of new white premium set and Nintendo Land bundled with Wii Remote Plus is unknown.

Wii U software sales Top 4 (this week) based on Ascii Media Works

1. Pikmin 3 --- 93,560
2. New Super Luigi U --- 23,453
3. New Super Mario Bros. U --- 3,006
4. Nintendo Land --- 2,944

Agree, plus all of these articles are ignoring the fact that New Super Luigi U was released on the same day as Pikmin 3.

Last weekend was the Wii U's biggest of the year so far in Japan, with Nintendo adding bundles and spending a fortune on advertising.
