The Wii U finally seems to be hitting it’s stride with the recent release of games like Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8, plus upcoming releases such as Super Smash Bros. and Bayonetta 2. In a recent interview with UK Marketing Boss of Nintendo UK Shelly Pearce, she shared some information about the positive growth in the UK for the Wii U.
“One of the key things for us is that people are starting to realise what software there is, what games they can get this Christmas, but importantly a lot of the key stuff that is coming next year, too. It is a really strong line-up. There are a lot of conversations going on about what is coming next year. Splatoon is key, Captain Toad is one I’m looking forward to, and of course Zelda. So we are expecting to see real growth from Wii U this Christmas and we will continue to build on that next year.”
Pearce also went on to mention that system sales for the Wii U were up 60% in the UK as well. Hopefully this trend continues for Nintendo to ensure upcoming success.
