Zelda Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U And Super Mario 3D World Sold 1 Million Units Each Worldwide

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U and Super Mario 3D World sold one million units each worldwide. While these aren’t fantastic sales, it should be reiterated that The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD only took around 6 months to develop, so it’s clearly a good return on investment. However, this sales figure is likely to include bundles.

With respect to “Wii U,” Nintendo released key first-party titles such as “The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD,” “Wii Party U” and “Super Mario 3D World” from the summer toward the year-end sales season. While these titles each sold over one million units.

  1. its slowly working! now this year has double the amount of system sellers. ( even though if like 250K of those millions are wii u owners who simply bough another game but still)

  2. I predict the SMASH and ZELDA U and MK8 bundle+ seprate games to sell over 2 million.

    hopefully there are DK bayo 2 and dk bundles too.

      1. I hope we get a special Bayonetta collector’s edition!

        Also, I replied to your friend code. You didn’t show up so either you typed in my code/name wrong or have not added me yet. I added you, but I didn’t know if their was a space between Jose and D. I put one anyway, because that is technically how you spelled it. lol!

  3. Sad to see that Pikmin 3 didn’t sell a Million copies… Was a great game though…
    Wonder if this will affect Nintendo’s decision whether to make a Pikmin 4 sometime in the future… Just hope the sales won’t affect their decisions…

    1. pikmins never been a massive seller anyway i don’t think but the still made pikmin 3 so i think pikmin 4 will happen long way a way though.

      1. yes. I do want a pikmin spinoff for 1 game per handheld genetation where you play as the pikmin and maybe try to build pikmin communities. cough pikmin SimCity cough lol. and I want a ice climber reboot. and kid Icarus to have wii u game even if not made by sakurai.

        these kind of franchises don’t sell that much because Nintendo doesn’t make them too often. make it regularily and bingo million sellers.

    2. it may still reach 1 million units

      nintendo games have a habit of selling at a steady rate even long after their release

      1. Sadly I don’t think it will happen…Miyamoto is old and considering retirement. I think his swan song will be the new franchise he is rumored to be working on. If Miyamoto leaves, I don’t think there is anyone else willing to take on a Pikmin 4 project.

    3. i just started pikmin 3 today.
      F….k this is awesome.
      everybody should try it.
      i dont like strategy, but this one is more.
      its so cued and funy.

          1. VG Chartz data is extremely unreliable so we don’t post it. I remember they posted that the Wii U outsold Xbox One in December, when in fact the Xbox One was the best-selling home console in the US during that month. I have no idea where they get their figures from, but they are way off.

        1. yay! ( pls buy smash and bayonetta 2 and mk8 pls pls pls I recommend it. oh and pikmin 3 is simply……………brilliant!)

            1. Pikmin 3 was amazing, it’s so good looking, it’s silly. A shittons of gems on the eshop aswell, almost filled up my harddisk already with nothing but VC and “indies”

              1. I have a 3DS but not Mario Kart 7 yet…

                  1. Nice I’ll add you then…

                    Here is mine:

                    Name: lEl

                    I mostly play at evenings because I’m too busy with studies rest of the days…

                    I love Dark pokemon…

                    1. IEI? ok. ill add you ok? name : Dawid.

                      code: 3153-4071-1007

                      although……can I call you NIn commander maybe……not sure what IEI is………or not?

                  2. oh I wanted KIU sooo much before. but its not for me I think. the controls will be very hard too and its quite a hardcore game actually. not for me I think. can I have ur code thing pls?

            1. Yes that’s right…

              I don’t have money enough or time o buy a Wii U right now but I sure do have money and time for a PS4…

                1. I don’t think you read right…

                  I said I’m getting one in late spring after my current semester in university is done…

                  1. Oh snap sorry sailor jerry rum has me tripping. I am usually on my toes but not so much right now. Miiverse is. Dope. Pikmin 3 for that first non-indepie title. Though. It has charm. Every nintendo system needs a nintendo title to experience. That magic. Cry later when you leave pikmin behind on those. Early missions though I did. Lol

                    1. Haha…

                      Yes I always feel stressed when my Pikmin are left behind…

                      Or worse getting eaten when I’m not aware of it and I hear them dying…

                    2. If Pikmin died in glorious battle, that’s ok, but if any get left behind, I start the day over. No Pikmin left behind on my watch.

            1. No, I’m getting one as soon as my current semester in university is done which is around late spring…

              So probably around Mario Kart 8 release…

            1. I bought a Wii U and 2 3DS’! Plus all the good 3DS and Wii U games. So I have DEFINITELY done my part ;)

    1. Well Mario Kart 8 is the last thing. If they don’t move sales drastically then it’s all over for the Wii U. It will either be like the gamecube or worse to the point of virtual boy or dreamcast.

        1. bayo 2 fans will buy it. xenolbalde fans will buy x.

          Zelda and smash are the other big systems sellers like mk8. weknow Zelda will come.

      1. well seeing how the virtual boy only sold around, 700,000, and the dream cast sold 10 million with in about 3 years. wii u will either be n64 or gamecube. personal i kinda don’t care, i’m not stock investor so i’m not really effected

          1. Maybe I should explain. I try not to stay in this stock, sells and number things. I just want to play video games. I might hope and analyze here and there but I try not to focus on them. I usually buy most third party on other platforms depending on some factors. It doesn’t effect me really because I support more then one platform. In end I don’t care like most gamers tend to do about these numbers.

    2. Pingback: Finally Some Good News Out of Nintendo! Wind Waker HD, Super Mario 3D World & Wii Party U Sold 1 Million Units! | What's Your Tag?

        1. I’m recharging my 3DS but I’ll do it now so I won’t forget…

          Tell me if you’re added in a few minutes…

            1. Haha…

              Yes, I have to look scary…

              I can’t command my swarm or scare our enemies if I look fragile…


              1. dam. oh well. after I get more friends ill ask you to rejoin just so ur scary mii ( not a nice commander) is last, if that’s how it works. hopefully as more join you will go last. if not then plan a :P

    3. COOL! Hopefully the number for these games becomes multimillion by the time the Wii U’s life cycle is over.

    4. Since Wii U hasn’t sold much, this means that about 1/3 Wii U owners own WW HD, assuming that it sold about 1.90 million. That’s pretty amazing.

      1. Since there is basically 30-40 games to choose from and half of Wii U owners are most likely Nintendo fans: not it’s not.
