Wii U version of Yakuza 1&2 HD didn't even make it into the top 50 in its week of release. Is this the biggest Wii U game flop yet?

Maybe. It's a port of a port of two PS2 games. It's kind of justified. SEGA didn't even expect the game to sell well.

And are you really surprised by this?

They should have ported and bundled Yakuza 3 & 4 instead, or at the same time, kind of hard to get excited over ported PS2 game with nothing but texture updates.

"Flop" suggests there was an expectation of success.

So no, Yakuza 1&2 HD didn't "flop". It sold like crap because there was 0 reason to buy it.

I thought by the topic title that the Yakuza had bombed Japan. I was wondering why you were posting about that on Wii U forum.

Two of those are new and ones is built from the ground up based off an old game. Your attempt is badly formed.
