Wii U Console Sales In UK Jump 685% Following Wind Waker HD Release

Posted on Friday, October 11 @ 10:13:45 PST by Alex_Osborn


Thanks to the release ofThe Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Nintendo's tablet-centric console has seen a major sales bump in the UK.

WillSuper Mario 3D Worldbe able to bring about a similar spike in sales when it launches next month? We'll just have to wait and see. I'm sure Iwata and the rest of the folks over at Nintendo have their fingers crossed.
