We may have an underdog story on our hands

It looks like The Wonderful 101 will be seeing an underpowered start in Japan with a limited number of copies available at launch.

Siliconera is citing Japanese retail blog Sinobi, which is stating that PlatinumGames’ colourful action title will apparently ship only 30,000 copies for its 24th August release.

If accurate, the figure implies a lack of available stock or, potentially, confidence in The Wonderful 101’s sales power in Japan. Hopefully the game can see a stronger reception there than anticipated, or at least experience heightened interest in the West.

Our own review of The Wonderful 101 calls it “a must-have title for the Wii U.” Do you think consumers will be set to Unite up with the team?
