Wii U got off to a good start in Japan, with Nintendo shifting over 300,000 consoles in its opening weekend.
to get their hands on Nintendo's new console and over half of those who purchased the console also bought a copy of New Super Mario Bros U.
According to Famitsu stats, 307,471 Wii U consoles were sold since Saturday while New Super Mario Bros U shifted 160,454 copies. Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate was the next best selling game with 106,454 sold so far but it was included with the Wii U Premium Pack in Japan.
Of course, our Wii U Premium Pack included Nintendo Land - the UK's best selling Wii U game - but in Japan, the game has sold just 66,583 copies. ZombiU, which was also included in a specia bundle in the UK, has only sold 10,680 copies.
By contrast Nintendo sold 350,358 Wii consoles in Japan during the first weekend on sale. So Wii U is not far behind.
