With Nintendo’s Wii U not selling as well as Microsoft’s XBox One and Sony’s Playstation 4, fans of Wii U can take solace in knowing that Super Smash Bros 4 for Wii U is coming out a true fighter as a game with a decent attachment rate.  Nintendo released a morsel of sale statistics about two of its recent cash cows.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is standing at a nice 1.5 million sales worldwide and while it’s not nearly as much as Nintendo’s racer, Mario Kart 8, it’s still an indication that Nintendo Wii U fans are still buying games on the system that is currently sitting at 9.3 million console sales worldwide.   Nintendo also reported that Wii U’s sales have increased 20% since February of last year.

Nintendo | Amiibo Launch Line-Up

Another Nintendo product that is taking over the world by storm is the amiibo.  With 3.5 million sold throughout the United States, Nintendo won’t be running out of cash any time soon. Once the port strike in the west has let up, that sale figure can only go up with more amiibo being made and shipped later this quarter. In addition to this, Mario Party 10 is releasing with its own lineup of amiibo for the party game which will further cement amiibo as a valuable asset for years to come.

Are you happy with the sales figures or do you feel that Nintendo’s glory days are far behind them?
