Here’s How Many Units Each Zelda Title Has Sold

zelda_sales_software

Wondering just how many units of the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time were sold? Well this graph details precisely how many copies were shifted along with the majority of other Zelda titles. As expected it’s Ocarina of Time that sold the most amount of units while Four Swords Adventures sold the least. There’s plenty more graphs to check out here, if you’re interested.

Thanks, Kyle

    1. Skyward sword sold like a piece of shit, because it is a piece of shit. Don’t say “majora’s mask” sold less, it was the second game on the system and overshadowed by ocarina of time.before you say “well twilight princess was on the wii”, yeah, well it was on gamecube as well, ocarina of time wasn’t on snes as well as n64, so suck it skyward sword fans, also wii had a much bigger install base, but most of the people who owned it were retards, kids and old people in one word casuals.

      1. Yea, and it’s not even a low 3mil, it’s just 240k shy of 4million.

        Skyward sold the way it did because it was sold near the end of Wii’s life. Games usually don’t sell great if launched at the end of a consoles life cycle, just like MM on N64, TP on NGC, and GT6 on PS3,

      2. Umm Excuses much? MM has been available on multiple systems, and the fact that it was a sequel to OOT, the highest selling Zelda game/most lauded, should mean it would sell more.

      3. No stupid. Meaning it’s a sequel, it would sell less because those who wanted Ocarina got their N64s for Ocarina. Multiple systems do not count, only the original systems. I do understand that Twilight Princess was released across multiple systems at the same time, but it has never been rereleased. Never have I heard anyone say they bought their Wii for Majora’s Mask on VC. Never.

      4. You’re assuming a lot of things. This list was conjured with units sold worldwide including digital copies and remakes in mind e.g. master quest and ocarina 3d. So stop spouting things as if you’re the king of this world and no one knows better than you you insignificant worm. Get a life.

      5. What? Who are you calling stupid? This has nothing to do with selling nintendo systems, it’s about how many each of the Zelda games have sold in TOTAL, which includes their multiple releases on multiple systems…In saying that; MM should have sold many more copies than it has. I say this because, it was a sequel to one of the most awarded games of all time! It should have piggybacked of off OOT’s success. e.g “I loved OOT I wan’t the sequel!” or “I’ve heard such great things about OOT but I’ve never played it, I have to buy the sequel!”. PLUS, it has been made available for purchase on the game cube, and wii.

Oh & there are people that will bitch at the prospect of Link getting with the Princess of Hyrule. Trust me on this because I’ve ran into some people that refuse to accept the possibility that at least one of the Links over thousands of years had a relationship with Zelda.

      27. Skyward Sword is the best… just cause a majority is ignorant on how to play… gameplaywise it is superior to any zelda title. Graphically excellent… story is OMG awesome. BEST characters in the series. Ghirahim ,Impa, Groose, The Dragons, Demise. .. all offered brillence not seen since Majora Mask… WindWaker has a pretty forgetable cast.
        It may not be as groundbreaking as OOt but that was a 2d to 3d leap with nothing else like it.. 3d graphics been around awhile now in Zelda.
        The 3ds oot is good but when played compared to skywsrd sword its fun factor is little.

Link from Ocarina of time sealed up Ganon when he put the sword nack in the postal. Ganaa killed Ocrina of time Link then the people was waiting for the hero to return. He never did because he was defeated. So they called on the so called gods. The earth was flooded. But before that Ganon killed the sages both from the deku forest from ocarina. Wind Waker Link had toget the master sword and restore thepower and kill ganon. Red Lions diedwith his kingdom by destroying the seal that kept the land below dry. The Duka tree and those sages are where Ocarina of Time Link came from…but if you are playing Wind Waker, that Link was defeated. So now we must know what time line is Zelda U taking after. My guess is Twilight Princess.

        Like

      4. The timeline that Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass, & Spirit Tracks is part of is the result of OoT Princess Zelda sending OoT Link back to the past to BEFORE they met. This allowed Link to change the past as he knew everything that Ganondorf would do, allowing him to warn the King of Hyrule. If you watched Dragonball Z, this is a big no-no as you don’t change the future but instead create a whole new timeline altogether, cutting the past off from the now-alternate future. Japan tends to use time travel in a way different from how the United States tends to use time travel. It’s still unknown how the 3rd timeline, where Link loses to Ganondorf, was created, so everyone has their own theory.

I enjoyed skyward sword a lot and it make be my favorite zelda, but there was a lot of memorable songs from that game, from the theme when you fly in the air, the battle theme when you fight ghirahim for the first time is unforgettable, and a lot of the other boss battle themes are good too.

    And the chart forgot to mention it, but…

    Four Swords is available on
    -Game Boy Advance (original)
    -DSiware (Four Swords Anniversary Edition)

    That means that including backwards compatibility, the only Zelda game not playable between the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U is Four Swords Adventures. And that’s counting the two Tingle DS games, the Tingle DSiware game, Link’s Crossbow Training, Hyrule Warriors, and the upcoming Zelda U. No, the CDi games do not count.

  17. to be honest the issues with Skyword are, the world is not as big as other Zelda. You have 3 areas and you have to go back and forth zillions times (but make sense after you see the end and have time to digest the all story). You have to beat a particular boss 5 or 6 times.

    Saying that there are good stuffs as well: the puzzle are good, The final boss is horrible/challenging at first,the remote control is just great and make sense. the story is good and kind of setup the all franchise.

    The skyword game was for me, a game where Eiji san tell to the world and Miyamoto san that’s he is THE boss now and he IS the guy behind Zelda not Miyamato san.

    1. More like you went back twice to each area, if my memory works corretcly, and you had to fight the same boss (not the same, but whatever) three times. I understand if you don’t like to backtrack, but keep the exaggeration to yourself.

      1. Each area is used thrice in the game, first for the chasing Zelda storyline, then for the sword forging storyline, then for the Song of the Hero storyline, and no, you didn’t just fight the same boss thrice, you fought two bosses thrice, all of them clumped at the end of the game, so the boss list falls marvelously to pieces due to the repetitiveness of the whole thing. at least TP knew to save the boss rush to the final dungeon when the stakes are at its highest.

      2. If that’s true, my mistake. I thought you only had to go twice through each area. Even so, the areas are not the same, like the second visit to the forest (flooded) forest, so that point is a bit ridiculous in the first place.

        “you fought two bosses thrice”. And another couple of ones that you left out, conveniently.

        ” at least TP knew to save the boss rush to the final dungeon when the stakes are at its highest.”
        And before the final dungeon you get some wonderful bosses like that aquatic boss of the third (I think?) dungeon, which CANNOT KILL YOU AT ALL. Defend what you will about Twilight Princess, but please, don’t make me laugh by defending the bosses when the only memorable one besides the final bosses was the dragon boss, even if it was very easy as well.

      3. No wonder you love the game so much, you seem to have a very erroneous concept of it, and I’m not even talking about your subjective opinions, I can’t care less about them, I’m talking about how you don’t even remember the basic architecture of the game.

      4. Who said I love the game? It’s probably my least favorite 3D Zelda title after Twilight Princess. It did a lot of things wrong, but the backtracking wasn’t one of them, no matter what the people that complain about it say. Those people are just complaining about going through an area with the same name as one they visited before without noticing they’re not following the same route at all.

      5. firstly your memory is incorrect cause you have to go back at least 3 times if not more. And the big thing have to be beaten at least 5 times easy. So now, you didn’t get me, I stated why player may not like the game and what I found could be the issue with the game. At any point I did not say I don’t like the game. Finally I don’t know where you come from but in my country we have freedom of speech and I use it.therefore the exaggeration I share it and if you don’t like it tough.

  18. No wonder Skyward Sword got the third-to-last place, the game is so inferior to Twilight Princess which coincidentally got the third place, it’s so technically underachieving it’s not even funny, the gameplay is linear and hand holding and doesn’t encourage exploration, abuses motion controls (Is there really a need to use motion for anything beyond the sword? There’s an IR pointer that works wonders in TP, but SS still decided to use motion for pointing, there’s a control stick readily available that TP used for both flight and swimming, but SS still chose to use motion for these activities), the story is cliched, the characters are hollow, the sidequests are mostly fetching, the overworld is empty, the dungeon progression is broken and lacks substantial rewards and motivations, the storytelling is minimal and very basic (TP made it so every single dungeon had its own little story and characters, the only thing that comes close in SS is the Sandship and it’s underdeveloped), there’s red herrings, plot holes and filler content everywhere, even the time travel mechanic was used differently in different situations (The orange crystal and the tree, both in the same room, operate on different mechanics, the crystal can be seen before it is put there in the past, but the tree has to be put there in the form of a seed in the past for it to exist).

    1. “the story is cliched”
      Same as every Zelda game.

      “the characters are hollow”
      Same as every Zelda game, with some exceptions.

      “the sidequests are mostly fetching”
      Same as every Zelda game, with some exceptions. Remember how fun fetching all those bugs was?

      “the overworld is empty”
      Same as every 3D Zelda game.

      “the dungeon progression is broken and lacks substantial rewards and motivations”
      Provide examples, or this is just empty wording. Remember how challenging was that Yeti dungeon, with the infinity soup potions?

      “the storytelling is minimal and very basic”
      It’s not much more simpler than many of the ones in the rest of the 3D games.

      “(TP made it so every single dungeon had its own little story and characters, the only thing that comes close in SS is the Sandship and it’s underdeveloped)”
      Why do you want so many characters in the dungeons? The Oocas were horrible, for example.

      “there’s red herrings, plot holes and filler content everywhere”
      Same as every Zelda game. Hell, just take a look at the timeline.

      1. I love when people nitpick the things Skyward Sword did wrong while ignoring the fact practically every Zelda game has done the same. Exact. Shit.

  19. Too bad Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker, Four Swords Adventures, & Skyward Sword didn’t sell a hell of a lot better. Oh well. They exist & are canon to the Zelda universe, so I can enjoy them to my hearts content so fuck sales. And if anyone hates those games, sucks for them since they are missing out for whatever reason they don’t want anything to do with them. Aonuma has only let me down once with him in the director’s seat for the Legend of Zelda franchise & that was with Twilight Princess, which isn’t even a bad Zelda game since it was at least good. Other than that, he’s got my full approval for the Zelda series since every other Zelda game he directed was practically a masterpiece. I can’t wait til Zelda for Wii U.

    up, I will try to get the hang of it!
