@ 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 :-| .
TK14 (on 16 January 2015)
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.

Well well, like I said just a minute
ago:

of_Zelda:_A_Link_Between_Worlds#Receptio
n 2.5m copies sold - as of March 2014.
I'm sure it's at 3m by now, or will be
at the end of this year. Digital sales
makes it pretty hard to estimate overall
sales...
DanneSandin (on 27 October 2014)
I'm pretty positive this game has sold
3m so far: by the end of January 2014
Nintendo's own official numbers were
2.18m. I guess that includes digital as
well, but I find it hard to believe
sales have been at a stand still since
then...
S.Peelman (on 06 October 2014)
Even though this is severely
undertracked, it seems the Zelda curse
strikes again. Apparently it never
mattered that Ocarina was 'just' a
remake, it still, as the system's
'first Zelda', easily outsold this
game.
