The Wii U has been one of the most unique consoles in the world.
Not just in the design and functionality aspect, but also in the fact that it continues to shows a monumental growth and acceleration despite being a console with very limited choices.
The console keeps surprising us.
We remember that there once was a time in the US where the Wii U sales were actually greater than that of the XBOX One. The console keeps punching well above its weight.
The biggest movers for the Wii games are the games featuring Mario. Mario Kart 8 was the fastest seller in the Wii U for the US markets, however, this distinction is now held by the recently released Super Smash Bros as it has managed to sell 490,000 copies in just three days.
The holiday season has just begun and is “off to a great start” according to Nintendo officials. The global sales figures are also expected to rise higher as the game now goes on to launch in the Europe, Australia and Japan regions.
There has been another statement from Nintendo which says “there are more surprises on their way”.
Super Smash Bros is living up to the expectations of the company and is coming out the true successor to its predecessor – the super smash bros brawl – which came out in 2008, and has sold over 12 million copies across the planet.
Surprisingly the number of users of the Wii are 7.8 million. The numbers don’t match but the truth is what we see in the numbers.
The game has been rated 8/10 on an average by most gaming websites, and here is what Daniel Starkey of Gamespot has to say about the game in his review about how the game is unique:
“This series presents a challenge unique to the Smash Bros. series: recovery. If you are simply knocked from a platform or fall off by accident, it’s usually easy enough to make it back. Every character has at least two jump moves, and almost all of them have an additional emergency technique for covering large distances.
Mindlessly knocking around opponents rarely clinches you a victory. Depending upon how well your opponent can predict your movements, it’s entirely possible and often advised to trick adversaries into falling off the stage for an easy knockout.
The amazing depth and variety of this system is at the heart of Smash, and its marriage of the ridiculous and the serious, and the casual and the competitive, is what sets it apart from other adversarial games”
