    Funny how the Wii U is still selling reasonably well in Japan with NO NEW SOFTWARE releases for it.

    I wonder what happens when Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, Sonic Lost World, The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U, Wii Fit U, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario 3D World all come out in the following months?

    What do the japs got to DO WITH US


    THEY kept Monster Hunter Frontier to them SELVS, THEY have kept PSO2 OUT of the States for like a YEAR now, THEY have a ton more pokemon 3ds then we do , THEY got a CRAP ton of rpgs for the wii that we DIDN’t THEY proably have some new Wii U jRpgs that we don’t EVEN know about AND they keep all the good stuff to them selvs q.q

    When the Jp market does well, it makes me hopeful that they might share with the Westerners… so’z they can make MORE money!

    @trolls: I’m sure their gaming site commenters have some equally querulous remarks about the rampant success of Zynga and Call of Duty.
