Pikmin 3 and New Super Luigi U spur Wii U sales in Japan

Software selling hardware, imagine that

The sun came up this morning, birds chirped, the tides continued their eternal ebb and flow, and a Nintendo product topped Japanese software charts. Some things never change.

Pikmin 3 launched last week in Japan, reigning supreme with more than 92,000 units sold in its first few days on the market. New Super Luigi U also had a respectable showing with its physical debut, shifting nearly 25,000 copies on the way to claiming the number five spot.

The Wii U received a nice little bump from the pair of hot new releases. The console managed to sell upwards of 22,000 units last week, up from 8,000 in the previous week. Perhaps the struggling piece of hardware is on the road to recovery. More games should help with that.
