Nintendo Reports More Poor Wii U Sales

Nintendo has revealed the Wii U is still in bad shape with the latest results posted on the system’s most recent sales.

Between July and September the Wii U has sold only 300,000 units worldwide which is a jump up from April-June’s shocking 160,000 units but this is even with Pikmin 3 and The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker HD on the console’s roster.

Over the last six months, Nintendo has only 460,000 units worldwide so far.

Since the system’s launch almost a year ago, the Wii U has sold 3.91 million units which endangers Nintendo’s estimates of the console selling 9 million worldwide before the end of the fiscal year in March 2014. Unless Nintendo comes up with something quick, the Wii U won’t be in good shape.

The company has a plan to lift Wii U out of the mud however, as it explains:

“For Wii U, we attempt to concentrate on pro-actively releasing key first-party titles towards the coming year in order to regain momentum for the platform. For the coming year-end sales season, we will release key first-party titles such as Wii Party U and Super Mario 3D World, and offer the Wii U hardware at an affordable price by bundling software with the system. We will also try new promotional activities such as a campaign where users can experience Wii Fit U free of charge.”
