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


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.

Hey, new guy. How about this? No one gives a fuck.


If you don't give a fuck, go away, because it seems you care being there.

Ocarina of Time is also one of the most iconic games ever released - it is the Super Mario Bros. 3 or Final Fantasy 7 of the Zelda series.

Add that there are also A LOT of brand new 3DS owners.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

3DS success is slowing down SS' success, but even if its, its still a success either way :P

Dude, most people don't even know what Zelda is. When I recommend them a good Wii game or just a good game in general, they're like "What's Zelda?"



While this is saddening, we have to take into account that Ocarina was pretty much the first must-have game for the 3DS, in addition to the bundles that other people have mentioned.



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

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.


There were a lot of commercials on tv for it, almost every commercialblock had one in the evening. They were all the same tho, all those with robin williams and zelda williams in it.


Where do you live? Not here in the U.S..



 

        

There are several major reasons for this:

-The Wii is in its twilight years. It's still selling very well, but at this point it has been out for 5 years. The demand for a major Zelda title simply isn't as high, and software sales for the system are down.

-At the same time, the 3DS is rising rapidly. Not only are its hardware sales massive, but its top titles (in this case the two Mario games and Zelda) are being pushed heavily.

-OoT 3D has had a very popular and well stocked bundle with the 3DS.

-The Ocarina of Time remake was really the first major title for the 3DS. Prior to that there wasn't really any system sellers in the lineup. The Wii's biggest sellers have come and gone and Skyward Sword is really only selling to the existing Wii userbase. Much like how PS2 titles started to sell less in 2005 and 2006, the Wii userbase isn't as energized.

I know.  I can't believe that Nintendo didn't run the Robin/Zelda Williams commercials here in the U.S.  Do they not realize how much that would have resonated with people here?  What a missed opportunity...
