According to the Japanese videogame news outlet Dengeki, the Wii U version of Yakuza 1 & 2 HD, which has only been out for a week, has not entered the Japanese top 50 videogame sales chart. Seeing as the spot for 50th place requires a game to sell over 2,000 copies, it’s safe to assume that Yakuza 1 & 2 HD for the Wii U has sold less than that amount.
Considering Yakuza 1 & 2 HD has been available to the Japanese on the PlayStation 3 since late 2012, it’s really no surprise that its newly released Wii U counterpart has sold poorly, although the extent to which it has failed is nonetheless remarkable.
One can’t help but wonder if Yakuza 1 & 2 HD for the Wii U would have sold better if it was released in North American and Europe. What do you think? Leave us a comment below and let us know!
