Nintendo players go gaga over new Zelda instalment: 10 million sales of the game in less than three days

In less than three days, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has sold over 10 million units worldwide – and is officially the fastest-selling game in The Legend of Zelda series in Australia.

The game is a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and in it players decide their own path through the sprawling landscapes of Hyrule and floating in vast skies above. Fans have been drawn toward the new destinations, dangers, sights and puzzles that require wits and resourcefulness to overcome.

“We have been blown away by the support of fans for this record-breaking launch,” said Managing Director of Nintendo Australia, Takuro Horie. “Nintendo Switch continues to deliver engaging experiences anytime, anywhere, and we look forward to seeing player’s adventures and creations as they journey through Hyrule.”

The Legend of Zelda series of action-adventure games started over 35 years ago with the first game for Famicom and the Nintendo Entertainment System.

As of March 2023, the series has sold more than 130 million units worldwide.
