I don't think that's the entire story. People were also turned off by their idiotic decision to try and make it "episodic". By and large, people don't like paying for games in pieces.
Beyond that, I think they were stupid to not just go back to Nintendo, say "hey let's make a sequel", and have Nintendo publish it, non-episodic, as a Nintendo console exclusive like it should have been in the first place.
