Final Upadate! [Switch vs Wii] Breath of the Wild vs Twilight Princess Sales Comparison + BotW already over 10m combined

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Final Upadate! [Switch vs Wii] Breath of the Wild vs Twilight Princess Sales Comparison + BotW already over 10m combined

Final Update: Nintendo announced 8.5m shipped + digital on Switch alone as of March 31st. Wii U is at least at 1.5m, which means Breath of the Wild is at 10m shipped + digital combined.

As a bonus, I added a simplified comparison between Wii U and GameCube, since GC data is missing and Wii U will have no problem matching it, the real deal is the battle between Swich and Wii.

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Did Twilight Princess have the same release date worldwide?

No. 1st week is NA only, 2nd it launched in Japan (I think) and 3rd week on Europe. First week aligned would be around 715k.

Thank you for this! Will be very interesting to follow.



This comparison will be fun to watch.
I see people who say Breath of the Wild will sell 10 million lifetime and I'm just thinking "Slow down. Let's see if it can become the #1 selling Zelda game first and then we'll see if 10 million is doable."
Seeing as how we have no data to compare it with Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess is the next best thing.
So far, Breath of the Wild is winning, but now Twilight Princess is starting to catch up. With summer coming up and other Switch games like Mario Kart, ARMS, and Splatoon 2 releasing, I anyicipate summer sales for Zelda take be pretty low werkly and for Twilight Princess to catch up.
HOWEVER, things should pick ip exponentially when we get to Breath of the Wild's first holiday season.

Didn't we already got numbers that the game sold 3.84M copies (Physical/Digital) at the beginning of the month ??

The thing is botw sales with wiiu were at 3.84mil in its first month. Game continued to sell well in april and with supply being an issue (for switch hardware) that shows itll have very good legs.

 

Its not 100% but BotW launch aligned is beating TP by quite a bit. 

 

Japan has TP ldt around I think 600k-650k. BotW is already at 588k retail (add in 50k digital to end of april) its already over. And itll do no less than 800k there (i think a mil can happen)

 

WW I think BotW will already be over 5mil+ by end of this quarter. (June) Thats 3.5mil short of TP ltd, without holiday + DLC Story.

This comparison is alredy starting to give the reason to those people, game is never gonna be below TP sales



Guess I should have stated that I meant the Switch version only and not both versions put together. Hence whi I stated why BotW had to he compared to Twilight Princess as opposed to. Ocarina of Time.

If switch version can hit 10mil alone that would put zelda at at least 12mil lifetime.

 

Im still going with 10mil but if botw hits lets say close to or even over 8mil by years end, thw game could pull mega huge numbers. Like 15mil lol
