GameStop Sees Spike In Sales For Pre-Owned Wii U Hardware Due To Zelda: Breath Of The Wild

Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is enjoying a monumental success worldwide and it’s recently come to light that it is also helping Wii U sales at GameStop too. Eric Bright, GameStop’s senior director of merchandising, recently spoke to Game Rant and explained that the new title in the Zelda series has prompted a sharp rise in the amount of pre-owned Wii U hardware being sold:

“With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild coming out, we’re seeing great results in our pre-owned Wii U sales. We’re selling a lot of pre-owned Wii U consoles along with brand new Wii U copies of Zelda. Breath of the Wild has reinvigorated sales of the Wii U with Nintendo Switch being sold out at so many retailers. The Switch launching and Zelda launching completely racked up the Wii U market.”

With the Nintendo Switch suffering from stock shortages around the globe, consumers may be having no choice but to enjoy Breath Of The Wild on Nintendo’s previous home console. Either way, at least fans have the option available.
