Sales of Nintendo's Wii U saw a drastic boost after The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker was released. A new report from Nintendo Life says that the company saw an increase in hardware sales of more than 685% in the UK alone. This proves Nintendo's longtime stance that games sell hardware and not vice versa.




UK head of marketing for Nintendo, James Honeywell said: "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."
