Wii U sales increased by more than 685 percent in the United Kingdom last week, largely thanks to the release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.

"We have long believed that software sells hardware and it's great to see that reaffirmed this week," Nintendo UK consumer marketing boss James Honeywell told MCV.

The title debuted at number four behind perennial chart-toppers Grand Theft Auto VFIFA 14, and F1 2013. Perhaps the maligned little console isn't dead in the water after all.
