The latest Zelda game by Nintendo is off to a strong start! The game is raking in the greens as expected!
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was released earlier this week and is putting up an impressive show. The Switch exclusive is cashing in some big numbers as gamers expected! In fact, the game might be doing even better than expected.
The game was teased early on in 2019 as a sequel to Zelda; Breath of the Wild. Tears of the Kingdom didn’t have a name during the time of its reveal. As of now the game is setting records upon records which we feel are well deserved of the title.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is set in the lands of Hyrule. Players will once again follow Link’s journey as he traverses the land and the islands floating above Hyrule. Solve puzzles, battle monsters and strategically use Link’s powers to defend the land from dark forces!
Currently, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the highest selling Zelda title in existence. Ever since the game went live 35 years ago in 1987, no other game in the Zelda series has come close to these numbers. Over 10 million copies of the game were sold world wide. A mighty impressive feat for the game as it lives up to its expectations.
In addition to the above record, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the most sold Nintendo game in the Americas. The number roughly comes down to 4 million units, which showcases an impressive positive momentum for the Nintendo franchise in the Americas.
As of today, the Zelda series has collectively sold over 130 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most successful ventures by Nintendo. The gaming company has also released some Zelda exclusives such as the Switch Carrying Case and the Switch Pro Controller to commemorate the success of the launch. Both of these are now available for purchase, so grab them now!
