For the past 8 months, Nintendo hasn\’t been doing so hot lately in the sales performance department with the period between April and June being their worst. In order to remedy this clearly problematic issue, Nintendo is planning on launching a number of high profile system-selling franchises onto the console with Nintendo UK believing that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is one of arguably many.
“It is the perfect time for Zelda fans to discover Wii U,” said Roger Langford, product manager at Nintendo. “For many Zelda fans, this is the first time that they’ll discover Wind Waker and we’re treating the game as a triple-A new release.”
Does the release and critical success of The Wind Waker HD seem familiar to you? Well it should because Nintendo actually hoping to replicate the success of the Ocarina of Time remake brought to the 3DS. It\’s comes as of no coincidence that many of the upcoming games on the Wii U are games from franchises that sold up to 33 million on the Nintendo\’s last generation home console, the Wii.
Langford added: “Ocarina of Time 3D performed positively on Nintendo 3DS and we’re looking to replicate this success with The Wind Waker HD.”
Nintendo seems pretty confident about the release of The Wind Waker HD. Might we see some quality marketing for this game in the near future?
