Nintendo’s Wii U is is not on target to achieve the previously expected forecast and has resulted in Nintendo cutting forecasts for Wii U and 3DS.
GamesIndustryBiz report that Nintendo has now dropped the Wii U’s sales forecast to 4 million Wii U units by the end of March, down from the company’s original prediction of 5.5 million units. The 3DS projected sales has also been dropped to 15 million rather than 17.5 million.
Nintendo has however raised its full-year profits expectations to ¥14 billion ($153.8m / around R 1 377 m) following the launch of the Wii U console which has sold just over 3 million units from November to the end of December.
11.69 million game sales for the Wii U has been sold since launch with New Super Mario Bros U and Nintendo Land leading the way with 2.01 million and 2.33 million units sold.
