Nintendo should have made a Twilight Princess HD instead of Wind Waker HD

Say what you want about the two games, but a Twilight Princess HD would garner more interest from mainstream gamers and shift more Wii U consoles. The graphics of Wind Waker HD are just not mainstream. The game even bombed in Japan, FFS...

Isn't Zelda in general not as popular there as it is here?

Well, sales have been dropping since Ocarina of Time over in Japan. However, no Zelda game has ever opened with less than 100K first week in Japan. Even direct ports and remakes sell above that amount in the first week. Despite this, Wind Waker HD opened with 30K. That's massive bomba for a Zelda game in Japan.

TP is the better game.

Wow...I had no clue it bombed that hard. Looks like Nintendo has lost the Japanese market too. Not good man. :-/

There was a Wii version of Twilight Princess, making the game still playable. Wind Waker was the correct choice due to the Gamecube's lower sales and the game's smaller audience.

Ocarina of Time was released on 3DS. Both it and Majora's Mask were on Virtual Console.

Link to the Past, Zelda and Zelda II were on Virtual Console.

Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword released on Wii.

The gaping hole was Wind Waker.

True. Still, I hope Twilight Princess HD is next. That game could use some tweaking and a Hero Mode like Wind Waker HD got. Also, you have to remember that Aonuma stated they experimented with Twilight Princess HD before trying out Wind Waker HD.

To add to the above guy's statement, you can even play Twlight Princess on the Wii U, from the Wii.
