Wii U Had Record Sales Over December
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
After an early stutter after its 2012 release, the Wii U had its highest-ever sales over December last year, capping off a strong showing over 2014 as a whole.
Nintendo sold 30% more consoles in 2014 than it did in 2013, and over that same period software sales rose by 75%, thanks to flagship releases Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, as well as Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2.
Another boost to Nintendo’s sales comes in the form of its amiibo figure series, which to date has sold 2.6 million units.
