Oh my god, Bic Camera in Shinjuku is collapsed. This photos make no justice, it's much bigger. I will upload a video later. You don't know where starts or finishes the line.




Super Smash Bros for 3DS








Buy a 3DS XL + Super Smash Bros and save 3.000 yen in Bic Camera

Adverts in the subway


I upload the videos.

A lot of people were also lining up to buy the new wave of Youkai Watch (Level-5) medals, these sell out in minutes.

we need a photoshop of the Xbox counter guy mixed with the Smash lines but maybe it's not funny enough

great stuff. There was one moment I doubted the Smash appeal had somehow vanished, glad to see it's not the case (yet)

Honestly I do wonder how the Wii U version is gonna sell. Isn't this gonna have an effect on that version?
Yeah.
But 3DS sales + Wii U sales will be a lot more than Wii U if it existed by itself.


Wii U Smash was never going to do more than a few million even if it was the only version.

Hope some will line up again for the Wii U version. Though the 3DS version may be a good gateway to the bigger home console release.

That actually makes sense. I was just thinking from the point of view that if it was on Wii U only it might drive Wii U sales.

Yeah, it would. But the money made from that wouldn't be nearly as much as this.
Wii U is already dead, so might as well get some software sales for the 3DS


Smash should be able to get over 9-10 million sales combined I feel. (If I'm way off, someone correct me.)

I like Smash but for some reason I'm not that excited. Probably because I don't have time to play any mp.

Depends on how content they are with the 3DS version.

Besides isn't the handheld versions of their games more popular than console? (Ex. MH)

...Nintendo should have aimed for Amiibos being on 3DS first rather than relying on Wii U.
