    1. Zelda games are more popular in the west than in Japan. Most Zelda games sell about 500k to 1M at most. BOTW has long legs so it might reach 1.5M to 2M lifetime sales.

      1. There’s NOTHING to be positive about with Nintendo at the moment. All they do is disappoint me these days, and cause me to praise the PS4 instead. BUT, there was nothing negative about my first comment that you replied to.

    2. That is 1 million in retail sales. It have been over 1 million with retail, digital, and Wii U sales.

    3. The surprising truth (surprising for some, anyway) is Nintendo 1st party titles just aren’t as big in Japan as they are outside of their home country. It’s very rare for their IPs to do better in Japan than everywhere else. The US has always been the biggest buyer of Nintendo IPs. In a way, Nintendo might as well be more of a United States company than a Japan one. lol

  1. this is bullshit why an’t HyperDimension Neptunia Re:Birth 1 Plus Limited Edition number 1 why not. idea factory and compile heart. did they best and it’s not number 1. fuck the legend of zelda breath of the wild.
