MegaMan 9's PAL Numbers Are Disappointing

According to VGChartz's latest PAL charts, MegaMan 9 (WiiWare) was downloaded 9,000 times on its first day in PAL regions. Compared to the immense first day sales of the North American version (60,000), that's disappointing to say the least.

Again, the number is based upon day one downloads. There is a strong possability the number grow throughout the course of the week. Or not. Hoepfully, we'll get some sort of followup.

Anyone else eager to hear MM9's total North American numbers thus far? I know I am.


  1. Mega Man just doesn't sell well in PAL territories. Capcom have said so themselves in the past; it's why we didn't get a release of the Anniversary/X Collections.

  2. well i don't know about numbers but last time i went to wiiware here at erurope, it was nÂș 1

  3. I had no idea MM9 was out in the PAL regions! Shows how on top of things I am. =P

    (I'm in the US but downloaded on the first day.)

  4. Well, I'm in Europe but I hacked my Wii to a US one in order to download the game on monday.
    Maybe there were more people like me?

    Oh well, maybe CoE will screw us even more now, but we're used to it by now.

  5. Me toooo... I wanna know! I was one of the ones who helped the numbers on the first day :P

  6. Well, sorry I didn't have 20 euros to buy Wii Points and get it D;...

  7. There wasn't any sort of advertising here atleast from what I saw.
    It was a stroke of luck I found out about the game in the first place and even then the release date for EU was never told anywhere.
    So maybe that's one of the reasons it didn't sell so well.
