Wind Waker Helps Selling Wii U?

Nintendo believes that with the Wind Waker HD edition, they will sell more Wii U consoles. What do you think about this news?

Nintendo claims that with the help of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, they'll be able to sell more Wii U consoles. This is no surprise, since The Legend of Zelda is one of the largest video game series in the world, and Wind Waker is being re-made in HD. Fans will go crazy for this game, and Nintendo will giggle with glee.

How did Nintendo figure out this news?

Product manager Roger Langford discovered that Wind Waker HD will be one of the first Zelda games for the new generation of gamers. Many might know about the past games, but they won't have first-hand experience with them. With this news, Nintendo figured it would be the "perfect time" for Zelda fans to discover the Wii U. With the remake of Wind Waker, Nintendo is hoping the title will match up to the success that Ocarina of Time received on the 3DS.

A great feature that will help sell Wii U consoles is the Wind Waker edition of the Wii U. Many people enjoy these collector editions of consoles, and the Zelda games are very popular. Featured in the Wind Waker edition of the Wii U is a digital copy of Wind Waker HD, and a GamePad decorated in Hylian symbols and script. For that edition it costs $299. For those gamers who already own a Wii U they may purchase a physical copy of Wind Waker HD on October 4th.

Do you think it's very plausible that Nintendo will sell more Wii U consoles under this edition? Are you planning purchasing this console, or the game? Share a comment below with your prospective Wii U Wind Waker adventures!

    That looks awesome. I'm considering getting a Wii U. I don't know if it's worth it.

    If there's more than one game you like on it I say go ahead. I'm not a huge fan of buying a console for one game, since it's hella expensive.
