Legend of Zelda Outsells Console
When Nintendo launched Switch, it also accompanied it with the launch of a very much expected installment in the Zelda series. However, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild managed to outsell the console. The game was sold in 1.3 million copies. Out of these 1.3 million copies, 925.000 were sold for the Switch console, while the rest of 460.000 went towards the Wii U.
Thus, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild became the best sold game through a Nintendo console launch ever. However, as previously mentioned, the Switch console’s sales are also through the roof right now. Nintendo are trying their best to keep up a balance between supply and demand, but consoles are literally flying off the shelves.
