Article (translated)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening has sold more than 430,000 copies in Europe in 72 hours, according to Nintendo Germany. No other game for Nintendo Switch would have sold as fast as the remake of Link's Game Boy adventure this year in Europe. However, it should be noted that this year, with the exception of Super Mario Maker 2, Astral Chain and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, the competition for this switch launch record was not really big.

If they finally made the third one, and bundled it with the first two and made it look like this I'd spend a small fortune.



Wow, that's really great! I love the art style. I am so close to finishing astral chain, so I will finally start links awakening. I hope they give a link to the past the overhaul it deserves, but give it it's own style, not the same as links awakening... also, let's start giving the ds zelda games some love too... those would be amazing.



Just an old man, a family man, and a gamer. My family is more important to me then life itself. 

Great start. 430k in Europe (probably digital and japan was 140k+

US is by far the biggest zelda market.

With ship+digital WW in the 2nd quarter report we could see already a 3mil seller. How much was SMM2? Thats a good comparison of seeing how well LoZ did

If it can manage to crawl in the 1.5M LT sales in Europe, that'll be good !

SMM was 2.4M and released in the last week of June, so only one week of tracking



Well, 1 million at launch week is pretty much locked in. The U.S., Zelda's main market, should bring it 500k at the minimum. I actually think it's closer to 600k.
So, 500-600k + 430k + 140k = 1070-1170k, not counting the other territories.

Nice.
I wonder if BOTW's phenomenal, ceiling-smashing success has raised the baseline for Zelda sales going forwards. Judging by how much its sales dwarf past entries, it introduced the franchise to a lot of new players.

I hope so! Zelda always deserved to sell BOTW like numbers! I just hope that many of the newer fans can appreciate the smaller-scope/top down games!
