Usually bundled games are included in software sales(It's why Wii Sports is the best selling game at over 82 million)

Nintendo announced that Wii U releases The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii U Party and Super Mario 3D World titles each sold over one million units.

Boy does the Wii U deserve this at minimum. A game such as SM3DW deserves to reach a far wider audience, truly a masterful experience. Wind Waker HD - for those unlike me who didn't play the Gamecube version to death - (again) deserves huge recognition. A truly unique and bold Zelda adventure.

I truly hope the Wii U reaches more homes and doesn't suffer the fate the equally great Dreamcast did, people only bemoaning its fate once it was too late.

it is nintendos fault for selling overpriced machine which is stuck beetween ps3-ps4
region locking with shitty netcode with worse than ps2
no account system
confusing name for casuals Wii-U + almost no marketing everybody i know has no clue what is wii U they think its an addon
gimmicky controller which is being dropped even b ninty first party games (donkey kong country freeze for example)
in first 6minth it had almost nothing to play
with all that said nintendo still makes amazing games and I will buy one when they drop the price to 100-150€

@higgins78 I agree. I missed Windwaker on the GC and I am loving the Wiiu version. Mario World 3D is another great Mario game and im loving it too. Im suppressed Wii Party U hit these numbers but I also own it and its great fun for the family and when friends come round.

Lets hope 2014 is a good year for the sales of the Wiiu as I also agree it is a very underrated console and deserves good sales just like the other 2 consoles do too.

Hmm, disappointing only 1 in 5 Wii U owners technically got Mario 3D Land, was expecting at least half. Maybe some more marketing on that title would help as its brilliant, hell I gave it a 10/10!

It's actually 1 in 3 or 33% ...

1.94 million Mario 3D World sales to 5.89 Wii U owners.
