1.21 million those legs are long and
sexy wonder if it jumps to 1.4 by the
end of year

Awesome game, well deserved sales.

Yay, well done DKC:TF! Still my fave Wii
U game.

P.S. For all those people
saying "it's not what Nintendo fans
wanted"... the best selling MP game
sold a little under 3m in its entire
lifetime, and I suspect probably had a
similar first year to this game. Don't
make the mistake of assuming that an
extremely vocal group on the Internet
represents the majority.

A game this amazing deserves to be a
multi-million seller.
The Wii U
deserves better sales in general.

Million seller, finally! My favourite
Wii U game to date, totally deserved!
