Zelda SS outsold by Zelda OO3D

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Zelda SS outsold by Zelda OO3D

I just can't get why....

Userbase: Wii : 95 millions,   3DS 14 millions

Competition on the platform: Wii: None for this holiday, 3DS  Mario 3D Land and Mario kart who are selling huge

Plus the previous Zelda on Wii is the best sold of the whole serie if you include the gamecube numbers.

So why Skyward Sword is selling so bad? Zelda has never been among the greatest sales but still. Being beaten by a remakeof the same serie is quite terrible.

It looks like it won't even reach Wind Waker numbers, a game released on parc of just 22 millions gamecube.

It's not about SS selling bad - it's about OoT selling really well! SS will still get good sales once it's all said and done.

Because Ocarina was released in June and Skyward Sword in November?

ocarina of time is now part of a bundle with an emblem encrusted 3ds its a hot item



Lack of advertisement on television and the quality of their ads. I never saw a Skyward Sword commercial on tv but I had to YOUTUBE them and they lacked creativity and the sense of 'oh this game looks awesome I have to go buy'. MW3 commercial-now that's how one should advertise.

But SS is outsold right now.

What numbers have the bundled? I know that in my country I have not seen one Zelda bundle for the whole holiday season as I purchased my 3DS.

Skyward Sword may suffer from the Wii motion Plus, altough the controls are amazing , people may be confused by what they need to play this game.



Its all about the motion control I think. It scared people away, even though it was done well.

OOT3D has a bundle and no competition in the RPG or Advanture genre and the 3DS is selling well while Wii is well 400k behind this week.

Skyward Sword is selling better then Twlight Princess really

Twlight Princess Skyward Sword
716,111 978,010
263,673 300,572
205,952 310,794
186,546 281,228

So it's selling fine nothing wrong with it yet.

(killeryoshis note - Who put that there ?)
Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

TP was a launch title you can't compare. Following this path SS will have trouble to do 60% of TP.



Mainly because Ocarina of Time was realised earlier in the year and is in a bundle with the 3DS.
