New Super Mario Bros Wii should in no way be listed as the standard by which all platformers should be able to sell. Wario Land: Shake It sold about on par with Kirby’s Return to Dreamland & Sonic Colors people regard those titles as commercial successes.

Also if you think Wario Land: Shake It flopped in sales, you must think most titles in the Metroid series are commercial flops.
