The game has sold a total of 10 million copies worldwide.
Nintendo has announced its financial results for the fiscal year that ended on March 31, 2018 and they’ve enjoyed great success both with the Nintendo Switch console and the games available for it. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had caused quite the commotion back when it had released and it was received exceptionally well. Now, we get to see the sales figures for the game and it is officially the best-selling Zelda game ever.
Previously, the best-selling game from the series was Twilight Princess and it had sold over 8.85 million copies. The Breath of the Wild however has overtaken every other game in the series with 8.48 million copies sold for the Nintendo Switch and 1.5 million units sold on the Wii U. That brings the total sales figures to about 10 million copies sold across both consoles.
Of course, this isn’t altogether surprising given the amount of excitement that had surrounded the game at the time of its release. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
