It's a shame... The game is rather amazing.

I blame Nintendos inability to be able to advertise this console and it's games properly

I've seen zero advertising on TV for the console in UK. It's crazy tbf.

I guess that doesn't count digital sales? I'm sure that promotion in Japan and Europe had to push most of the sales with it being a great deal and all.

I have seen maybe one pikmin commercial here in the states, and that's the only thing I've seen that is WiiU related on TV ever since it came out.

I wonder why they're so quiet on everything for the console.

I'm kind of hoping they're purposefully keeping things quiet so they can effectively re-launch the console with the others this fall (maybe with some re-branding? Or a new ad campaign all together)... at least, I really hope so.

We know.

How about we give it time, for it to come out in all regions, and let it stretch its legs. It's a niche title, like a baby, you can't expect it to be sprinting a marathon while still connected to the umbilical cord.

I don't think sales are really going to pick up.

It's the best game of this gen and no one is buying it :(0
