It’s easy to get caught up in the negative press concerning the Wii U. Hell, we’ve posted a few articles lately pointing out a few of the Big N’s flaws. Still, it’s always nice to see some good news concerning Nintendo, and that’s exactly what we got from their President, Satoru Iwata, stating that The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World & Wii Party U have each sold (not shipped) 1 million units since their release.
As My Nintendo News pointed out, these aren’t fantastic sales figures by industry standards, but Wind Waker HD only took 6 months to develop which should have given Nintendo a pretty decent turnaround. Hopefully the Wind Waker HD sales number lights a fire under Nintendo to get the Wii U Zelda we’ve all been waiting for.
