Nintendo may have the best lineup in both, the console and handheld segments, but you wouldn’t know it by their market performance. According to the latest NPD reports, Nintendo’s flagship console, the Wii U, had a dismal showing in the world’s biggest video game market last month.

Although NPD itself never gives out hard numbers, leaving it to the companies themselves to hand it out at their own discretion, we thankfully have some leaks from creamsugar, a well known industry follower who has often leaked NPD numbers in the past. According to him, Wii U’s sales were 46,000 units last month, which is a dramatic decline from the otherwise decent numbers the system had managed to post over the last few months, ever since the launch of Splatoon.

However, it was not all doom and gloom, either. The 3DS continues to impress, with its hardware sales up 35%, and Nintendo’s software sales over the last seven months are up 10%, thanks to the launch of Splatoon.

However, given the general anemic retail performance of the Wii U, it’s not hard to see why Nintendo would be fast tracking the NX for next year.

    See this here just proved my point about npd and Sony with their bullshit, npd has Nintendo’s numbers but they never gives Sony numbers and Microsoft already said that they don’t give their numbers to npd because their are independent company that don’t have nothing to do with financial reports for the USA that all company operating in the USA most report to
