Sales of The Wonderful 101 in Japan are not very wonderful. According to 4Gamer, Platinum Games' latest sold only a little over 5,000 copies on its first day out in Japan, not even making the top 20, one week later. The Wonderful 101 arrives in the US on the 15th of this month. Hopefully it will fare better there.
