OoT 3D got added to the Nintendo Selects eventually.

Link's Awakening is a remake of a Game Boy game, so what has led to the 0.19m shipment is likely just that it has exhausted the pool of people who are willing to pay $60 for it. The game is going to be old enough to be a regular in future digital discounts for Nintendo software (typically 33% off), so it should be able to get within striking distance of OoT 3D eventually.

That is true, there might be plenty of people just waiting for a low pricepoint for such a game. I'd love to be proven wrong.

It's totally the price point that killed sales. I would love to pick up the game but there is no way in hell I'm picking up a gameboy remake at $60. Nintendo really needs to reduce the price of games when their sales die off. Link's Awakening had a huge first 11 days or so when they announced 3 million sold, and then an ok holiday after launch, and then its sales just completely died because everyone willing to pay $60 had bought it when it launched. The game should be $30 right now, as should Arms, Let's Go, and probably a few others. All of the Wii U ports that aren't evergreen titles should drop to $30 after a year. Nintendo would rather refuse to drop the price on games (until very late in the console life cycle) than get more sales of these games. I bet there are at least a couple million people just waiting for a reasonable price on Link's Awakening.
