Nintendo is incredibly stupid. This

Easy explanation... The game has really
low stock (In my country, we have no
copies left, so I can't buy the game,
sadly) and nintendo's undershipping it!
I mean FY15Q2 shipments were just
10k.... And this game isn't the only
victim of Nintendo's undershipping and
underestimation ! Pikmin 3 and DKTF are
too, I have seen many complaints from
people because they can't or it's hard
to find it and due to that their price
has been inflated...

New super mario
bros U also is fairly unappreciated,
some people due to bad word of mouth by
a loud minority have the
misconception,that is not a good game,
therefore they don't purchase it! This
was wii u's launch game, in 2012, ergo
it had a huge drawback of being in the
period when wii u was in utter bad
position before Mario kart 8 arrival...
The game sold blazingly fast but then it
plummeted it, mainly because is
Nintendo's fault! They should at least
bundle it again with super mario 3d
world or with super mario maker!
deserves more sales, at least surpassing
super mario sunshine but given the
situation, it's hard! I can see it
becoming a Nintendo select shortly
though! I can't fathom why Nintendo had
stopped so early bundling the game...
Super mario 3D world+ New super mario
bros U is better than SM3W with Nintendo
