"Nintendo has told MCVUK that sales for the Wii U in the UK has increased 685 percent for the week ending October 5. The increase in sales is due to the release of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, as well as a price cut.

This is a good sign for the console which has struggled all year. The Wii U sold just 1,268 units the week beforeWind Waker HD, according to VGChartz. That would put last weeks sale at 8,685 units.

Nintendo has several games that will be released later this year that will help keep sales up. Super Mario 3D WorldSonic Lost WorldWii Fit U, and Wii Party U."

 

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this? Some people may say "derpa derpa derpa it's still less than 10k" but I don't care. That is a HUGE increase from zelda with the pricedrop for one country.
