barely released, the Nintendo game has just broken this impressive record, it makes you dizzy

Released on Friday, May 12, 2023, The Legend of Zelda : Tears of the Kingdom is well on its way to becoming the new GOTY. In any case, that’s what this impressive record that the game seems to indicate Nintendo just beat.

An impressive success

After six long years, fans of The Legend of Zelda have finally discovered the successor of Breath of the Wild. Long teased, the game seems to have conquered even those who initially feared that it was only a DLC of the 2017 game. Much more complete, further pushing the feeling of freedom, The Legend of Zelda : Tears of the Kingdom is acclaimed by critics and fans alikeand could well be a new high reached by the license.

At any rate, fans have been there since day one of the release of the new adventures of Link and Princess Zelda. And it is not the first figures officially communicated by Nintendo on its social networks that will make us think otherwise.

In three days, The Legend of #Zelda: #TearsOfTheKingdom sold over 10 million copies worldwide, marking the best debut in the series’ history.
Thank you to all those who accompany Link in his new adventure!

So, as you can read, The Legend of Zelda : Tears of the Kingdom signs the best start in the history of the license started in 1986 on NES with 10 million copies sold worldwide in… three days. It’s also the best start for a Nintendo game at all.

This figure is all the more impressive when one considers that in six years, The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wildreleased in 2017 on WiiU and Nintendo Switch, sold 29 million copies worldwide. So, The Legend of Zelda : Tears of the Kingdom reached one third of the sales of Breath of the Wild in barely three days… Note that of the title’s ten million sales, 2.6 were made in Japan, where Nintendo originated.

These completely crazy figures suggest other records to come: while The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild is the fourth best-selling Nintendo Switch game, it is not impossible that its sequel, Tears of the Kingdombegins to rub shoulders with, even exceeds, the summit climbed by Super Mario Odyssey and its 52 million sales worldwide.

If the latest video game adventures of the most famous plumber could well see their sales boosted by the success of Super Mario Bros. the movieswhich was a hit at the cinema, The Legend of Zelda : Tears of the Kingdom could well know an even more golden destiny. The least we can say is that the year 2023 will have been a glorious year for Big N!
