Minecraft Becomes Number 1 Selling Game of All Time on Japanese Wii U eShop

Minecraft Wii U Edition was thought by some to be a too little-too late type of scenario. The game has been released on virtually anything with a screen, so many thought that the impact the game would have on the Wii U would be little to none. It looks like these feelings of doubt have been quieted though, as Minecraft Wii U Edition has become the highest selling Wii U eShop title in Japan to date.

Minecraft Wii U Edition has already sold more than 77,000 copies, which is about half of what the PS4 edition has sold digitally even though it’s only been on the market for a fraction of the time. It looks like Minecraft and the Wii U was a match made in heaven after all.
