It’s the beginning of the year and the end of the third financial quarter, so we’re starting to see sales reports for companies roll in. We’ve already seen Nintendo’s reports and we expect Ubisoft’s at the end of this month. Sega Sammy’s report is in and it looks like Sonic Lost World did pretty well for itself. According to their financial report, the game sold 640k copies worldwide across both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS.
We know US sales from NPD Group account for at least 179k, so it seems like Sonic paired with Nintendo might not be such a bad thing. Of course yesterday Sega announced Sonic Boom, a brand new game to accompany a CG cartoon show that will be airing later this year.
