Wii U UK sales spike 685% on Zelda launch

Wii U UK sales rose by more than 685 per cent last week, Nintendo has told MCV.

The sudden improvement in sales follows the debut of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, which debuted at No.4 in the Chart-Track All-Formats Charts lastweek.

Wii U has suffered a poor nine months, which Nintendo attributes to a lack of awareness and the absence of major software.

The firm’s big Q4 campaign started last week for Wii U, and the console has also seen a slight reduction in price, which coincides with the arrival of a new Zelda hardware bundle.

A LEGO City Undercover hardware package is set to arrive later this month.
