Hey atleast it sold better then the W101, thats something right?

Unfortunately its really not.
Im not surprised at the sales, windwaker is one of the worst selling 3d zeldas, if not the worst, and its also an hd remake, which japan doesnt buy.

I'm pretty sure it will sell better in US and EU.

still unfortunately, but zelda hasn't exactly been popular with the Japanese market, the series has resonated well with the west and i suspect this is where the game will perform decently

ok when a Zelda game does bad in sales that's when you know you've made a bad console.

That is a huge leap in logic. Zelda has never done well in Japan, and this console has considerably smaller install base than the previous on top of most people having played Wind Waker already.

You are just make a generalization to bash the Wii U.

This isn't a new game, its an upgrade of an old one. Remind me how much Z.O.E. and DMC HD collections sold again?

Never knew zelda was unpopular with the Japanese, well lets see those NA sales then.

Does this include eShop purchase though?
It's a shame, zelda never really sold much compared to EU/VS in japan.
