Despite a rather slow selling launch, Nintendo’s latest console seems to be picking up some steam. The month of September was an immensely positive month in terms of Wii U sales in the United States and the United Kingdom. US sales of the console jumped up 200% in the past month, and UK sales skyrocketed 685% in the last week.

This increase in sales is obviously attributed to two recent factors. First, the Wii U’s price was cut $50, lowering it to $300. Probably more important though, The Wind Waker HD was released for download at the end of September, and the physical bundle was shipped out in early October. The combination of a price cut and a better line up of first party titles is definitely doing the Wii U some favors.
