Tecmo Koei president Yoichi Erikawa has revealed that his company is aiming to sell more than one million copies of Hyrule Warriors. The upcoming Wii U action title, which is being developed in collaboration with Nintendo, is scheduled to make its debut this summer in Japan. Set in the vast land of Hyrule, the game contains elements inspired by Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors series.
“In gaming, this is a first-time collaboration,” said Erikawa. “As a new entry in the Warriors series, we plan to release the game Hyrule Warriors in collaboration with Nintendo in the summer of this year. In addition to our Warriors series fan base, Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda is also a very popular series with a large fan base, and I think it will become a great new market. Because of The Legend of Zelda’s legion of fans overseas, we are aiming to sell more than one million copies worldwide.”
