The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD’s release has sparked a 685% leap in Wii U hardware sales across the UK, according to a fresh report.

In a statement sent to MCV, Nintendo UK’s head of consumer marketing James Honeywell said of the figure, “We have long believed that software sells hardware and it’s great to see that reaffirmed this week with an uplift of Wii U hardware sales to coincide with the launch of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.”

It’s still unclear what a 685% jump in hardware sales actually equates to in units sold.
