If you think about it and do the math,
this game made 30,000,000$, so obviously
they made profit on this.

this game is a symbole of Nintendo of
America not understanding the market
(just throwing sequels of games, that
sold well on the Wii, whether it makes
sense or not..)...., of course this wont
sell enough during it's launch time....
there are already enough jump'n runs on
the Wii U.., but are there any (big)
"Si-Fi" games other than the late
ported ME3??...

.... if they're
going to make Star Fox before Metroid,
hope they give the game enough time and
not let it feel like an "add on"..
(somewhat, what DKCTP felt like..)

I hope you are wrong, wrong and wrong

@metallox No, no, and uh No :-D
kno why all the DK hate posted here, are
you made cuz DK came before Metroid?
That would explain alot. DK will hit
over 800k before Years end, so stop
thinking it wont hit a million.
