Low Switch stock, Zelda: Breath of the Wild interest giving bump to Wii U pre-owned sales at GameStop

Coming from an interview with GameStop senior director of merchandising, Eric Bright...

“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.”

Let's hope those picking up the Wii U now will dive into its library and check out all the great games they missed. Then they can trade it back in and grab a Switch later!
