Yeah hopefully they'll update the sales
of this game in their next financial
reports!

Some serious undertracking or high

Nintendo has this at 2.5 million as of
March 31, 2014, i´m sure this should be
at 3 or 3.5 million LTD sales at this
moment.

@ TK14: Lol, as if I could feel you
replied to that post of mine months ago.
:-P

What you say is true though, A
Link Between Worlds has a lot going
against it. I had hoped for some kind of
'New Super Mario Bros.'-nostalgia
effect, but no joy.

I agree there
won't be a Zelda curse finally on WiiU,
would be a disaster if Zelda U wouldn't
break 1.5m :-| .

S.Peelman, I think that has more to do
with Ocarina's legacy, it being a 3D
Zelda, and the vastly superior asthetic
of the game.

A Link Between Worlds
is a masterpiece. Unfortunately though,
its graphic style looks
cheap/lazy/uninspired, AND it's a 2D
Zelda game, so it seems like many
believed it wasn't worth their time
because "it's just a rehash of A Link
to the Past," which couldn't be
further from the truth. It's just too
bad Nintendo didn't have enough faith,
in the genius design and freshness of
the changes they made, to give this game
the art-style and graphics that would
better communicate its quality to the
mainstream and hardcore gaming market.


That being said, I can guarantee you
that the "Zelda curse" will NOT rear
its head on Wii U. There's no way in
hell the new open-world Zelda game for
Wii U fails to outsell The Wind Waker HD
just because WWHD came out first.
