Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Is Now The Highest Selling Zelda In Japan In 19 Years

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now the second-highest-selling Zelda title after The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64. Ocarina of Time, which launched in 1998, is still the highest-selling but The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild could soon catch up to it. Here are the facts, outlined by Reset Era member Ishaan:

  • As of last week, the game has sold 957,752 units in Japan at retail
  • This figure only accounts for retail sales, so the number is even higher when accounting for digital sales
  • This figure also does not represent the latest sales figures for the Wii U version
  • Ocarina of Time has sold approximately 1.25 million units in Japan
  • The previous second-highest-selling Zelda was Phantom Hourglass (2007) at 907,821 units sold
