Is Rayman popular in Japan or are we looking at W101 numbers?

I'm sure it'll do better than TW101 but it still will be a bomba.

So Legends ended up as a Wii U exclusive at least in Japan.

Would be more than happy just getting a copy of the sleeve to go with my eventual NA Wii U version purchase. Shame that's not so easy to obtain, don't want to import the game at full-price (conversion will kill my wallet) just for the sleeve. :P

You're looking at something that'll likely be way below W101 numbers. Rayman Origins charted in at #43 in a week where the 20th selling game sold 3.2k. So RO may have sold a few hundred units.

Exclusive? They should have released in February then. There still hasn't been a demo in Japan and they didn't get the challenge mode either, so Japan is going into this launch hype-free.

After seeing W101 and Wii U system numbers I can safely say ubisoft made the smart move making the game multiplatform. Sadly it probably still won't do well as I recall Rayman origins moved even thought was one of the best games (if not THE best) of winter 2011

Indeed. Japanese text makes boxarts at least 1328% cooler.

That's Amazon Japan selling the US version in Japan since region free. Nintendo has exclusive rights to publish it in Japan as Ubisoft doesn't seem keen to publish a lot of stuff in japan

Ubisoft seems to let a lot more of their general audience stuff in Japan get published by Nintendo if its at least on a Nintendo system. Saw that with Just dance etc

I wonder who's being stupid here - Nintendo or Ubisoft. Origins got released on both Vita and 3DS here (don't remember if we got the PS3 version), but with a few month delay iirc.

The one on the Wii sold 14,000 and given the WiiU's install base were looking at another W101 here.

Man, what is up with Nintendo published titles having characters/items on the Wii U stamp (Glowbox's arm). This is also on the Nintendo Land box and NSMB U Box. No other title does that. At least that I know of.

edit: and man, that is one lovely box. But, I will probably never look at it again, and swapping discs is a pain. Buying day one digital on the eShop!

The only Rayman game which was ever released in Japan was Raving Rabbids.

Won't do more than 10k on launch week.

pretty much no one buys ubisoft published games in japan, for example just dance published by Nintendo sold like half a million plus whereas the Michael Jackson game published by ubi sold like 10k
