Yakuza bombs massively in Japan. Less than 2000 sold in first week.

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.


They spent half the time in a Nintendo Direct dedicated to it.

I think it's fair to say they didn't expect a huge seller.

At the same time though, I don't think anybody expected <2000. That's not just a disappointment. That is a colossal failure.

Why would ANY 3rd party developer put serious effort into Wii U? It has a tiny, barely growing install base who's indifferent to third party games.

Nintendo is lucky to be getting cheap ports at this point.

It is still a HD port of easy to find PS2 games, which was released on the PS3 last year.
A Nintendo Direct doesn't change that most of the people who would have wanted to play a Yakuza game were playing all four of the games already, even in HD. >_>
