Not only do I think it will, there's a good chance that the Switch version will do it all by itself!

Agree, It seems that Zelda BotW for Switch is going toward 15m. :D

Isn't it a also the best-selling of initial release versions-only? That really only applies to Twilight Princess, with the Gamecube and Wii versions. It's just shy of being higher than TP with the HD remaster, but it has a way to go to top Ocarina of Time + OoT3D.

Yes, but it not close to Ocarina of Time N64 + OoT3D.




12.81m, according to here. Maybe it's over 13m since 3DS does have digital. Still, I don't doubt Breath of the Wild will manage to pass it given its momentum up to this point. It's still regularly in the Top 10 and... has it ever fallen out of the Top 20?



It's great to see Nintendo taking chances with an established franchise paid off so well for them. It's such an awesome game



Nothing to see here, move along

Zelda’s numbers are what impressed me the most on the quarterly results. It’s officially above Twilight Princess combined now. I’m impressed.



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
