Game sales stats website VGChartz is reporting that Wind Waker HD has sold over 152,000 copies in North America during its first week of sales. Keep in mind that this does not include digital copies sold on the Nintendo eShop, which is said to be doing well. The biggest news from this is that North America saw a sales boost of Wii U units to 35,000. That’s a jump of 31% for Wii U sales.
Nintendo had a huge marketing campaign for Wind Waker HD and the Wind Waker HD bundle. Many people were excited to get the GameStop bundle with the included Ganondorf figurine. This is great news for Nintendo in North America and hopefully we’ll continue to see these sales trends with major releases like Super Mario 3D World.
