Wii U Sells 2 Million Units in Japan In Less than Two Years

on December 3, 2014 7:53 AM

The Wii U will celebrate the second anniversary of its Japanese launch on December 8th, and the best way to do that on a high note is definitely a sales milestone.

Today Media Create released its weekly hardware numbers, and we learn that Nintendo’s console passed two million units sold in Japan in the week ended on November 30th. The total is currently at 2,009,513 after a strong week with 12,496 consoles sold.

Below you can check out a graph showing the sales of the console in Japan since launch.

We’ll have to wait and see just how far it’ll manage to reach this year, considering that the period around Christmas and New Year is the strongest, sales-wise (as you can see where the graph spikes sharply between December and January).

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
