The remake apparently made bank in Europe.
The remake of the classic Game Boy game, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, is here and has found a new life with its cute and unique art style. The game seems to be quite the success as well, and reportedly the game has already sold nearly half a million in Europe alone via a new report.
According to 4Players, a new leak from Nintendo Germany puts the number of sells at roughly 430,000 units in just under 72 hours. Nintendo Europe already stated the game was the fastest selling Switch title of 2019, but this is the first solid numbers we’ve gotten. Couple this with the solid sells the game saw in Japan, and it’s looking like the game is a clear success for the return of the classic Zelda title.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is available now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. For a look at our review of the game to see what we thought of the reamake, check through here.
