Rayman Legends sells under 1,500 copies in its first week in Japan

Rayman Legends was the second best-selling Wii U title in Japan during the week of October 14th. Sadly, that’s not saying much. (Rayman Legends, Wii U)

Not surprising, Ubisoft screwed this game last year with delays and porting it to X360 and PS3. We all know what's coming next, Ubisoft will release another statement threatening to pull support from the Wii U if Rayman Legends and AC 4 don't sell.

in japan wiiu is dead,only nintendo games have chances of sell.the tokio game show have cero wiiu third party games.

I wouldn't say its dead yet, but Nintendo needs to get the ball rolling. Next E3 will make or break the Wii U, so Nintendo needs to show something interesting, something not seen before, and only available on their platform. Otherwise I can't see Nintendo supporting a system dead in the water going into year 3 or 4. They will be the first to announce a new next gen systems if dismal sales continues by TGS2015.

Like i said, this does not suprise me at all, every one is waiting for Mario 3D world, Ubisoft made a big mistake by releasing this title so close to mario's release date, I am sure after the holidays and Ray man gets marked down, it will pick up in sales.

And they say Wii U isn't dead.
MrCastle  +   324d ago
So Nintendo intends to release Mario 3D world the same day as the Xbox One is released? Did Nintendo learn nothing about timing over the years? It is gonna be forgotten about in the flood of new games and features. Rayman could have been the first hit on Wii U if they would have kept it exclusive.

someone will play ryse over mario lmao wtf lol
MrCastle  +   324d ago
I would! Hands down! I've played Mario games for almost 20 years. Time for a change. I'm sure I'm gonna buy a new Xbox on day one and for some reason dust off my wii u for this one. I can hold out till Black Friday for another Mario game.

Sad, this game deserves far more sales than this. I hope this doesn't lead to the end of the series.
SlapHappyJesus  +   324d ago
That's incredibly sad. Both for the game, and the Wii U itself.
It truly is a quality system that can offer a lot, but I really don't see the third-party support happening at this point.
The system is heading the way of the Gamecube. A handful of solid, third-party exclusivity releases and then nothing outside of what Nintendo releases themselves until an early shelving of the system itself and a, hopeful, new console release that fairs better for them.

Unnecessary delay could be responsible for this... the game was ready back then.

To be fair, Japan isn't interested in Rayman.

For a start, the character itself is pretty unappealing.
