UK Charts: Nintendo Land is the best-selling Wii U game

How did the rest of Nintendo's Wii U games sell?

Nintendo Land is the best-selling Wii U game in the UK. Nintendo's great mini-game collection beat New Super Mario Bros U to become the Wii U number one but that wasn't enough for it to reach the UK top ten.

Nintendo Land is the highest-placed Wii U game in the All-formats chart at number 11 while New Super Mario Bros U went in at 14 with ZombiU further back at 17.

Of course, games such as Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2, FIFA 13 and Assassin's Creed 3 are now on Wii U and the sales of these Wii U versions are added to those off other versions but, as you can see from the Wii U Chart below, they're not the best-selling Wii U games.

    Got Nintendo land, mario and zombiu, straight off the bat. Zombiu is my favourite, so difficult, intense, scary. Really good game.

    It's probably because lots of people know that there is something for everyone on there so everyone is buying it. Also does this include buying premium pack instead of basic when it comes to Nintendo Land?

    Besides the Wii U hasn't been out for a week yet so you can't really tell by now.

    Nintendoland ....only because it was included!
    "but it's a good game"…

    Probably wait until after the crazed retailers start to drop the prices for the Wii U games before I buy anymore ...hopefully it will happen after Christmas. Compared to the eShop prices, the retailers are cheaper ...but still Ł40 - Ł50 a game …it’s cheaper to buy imports.

    Sonic Racing Transformed is a decent price for Ł30 (Retail) though! …but knowing Sega games this will drop to about Ł20 after Christmas.

    suprised AC3 is so far down - damn it, I want a WiiU! Getting one next year, when the price drops, it was forecasted that it would drop in 2013, early as summer, but holiday period at latest. Defo getting the snazzy black pack, if it's still avaliable when I come to get one. Mind you, I am getting Brotherhood for PC, so it won't be TO bad...
