In addition to this, Nintendo Australia confirmed to the publication that Australia will not be getting a Wii U price drop this year, despite the announcement of a price cut in the United States.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD bundle will debut on September 20 in the United States. It will include a digital copy of The Wind Waker HD to be redeemable immediately, ahead of the game's retail launch on October 4. The bundle will feature a custom GamePad with Zelda graphics and the digital version of the Hyrule Historia book.

The Wii U has struggled thus far, selling 160,000 units worldwide in the April-June quarter and 3.61 million units overall. Nintendo is aiming to boost sales by releasing a steady stream of marquee titles, including Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
