The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD has contributed to a large Wii U sales increase in the UK. Last week, sales of the system rose by 685 percent, Nintendo says.
Nintendo UK head of consumer marketing James Honeywell told MCV:
“We have long believed that software sells hardware and it’s great to see that reaffirmed this week with an uplift of Wii U hardware sales to coincide with the launch of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.”
Nintendo did not dish out any specifics on the console’s sales, but that percentage is nonetheless encouraging.
