Initial release only. Not including the multiple re-releases of OoT or any other Zelda game. This also means I think Japan will fully embrace Zelda for once and put up some hefty numbers themselves. Agree? You have no option but to agree.

Hmm... well the hype has been bottled up for ages.
On the other hand I can see alot waiting for the NX and the "better" version of the game likely to be there.


Im not sure I agree with your assesment, of it ending up being the highest at release, ever.

considering Ocarina of Time sold over 7 million units, LoZU would need basically the entire Wii U install base to purchase the game

1.7 million in Japan (1.5 retail + 0.2 digital)
2.4 million in Europe (2 retail + 0.4 digital)
3.1 million in NA (2.5 retail + 0.6 digital)
That will make 7.2 millions WW.

(MK8 = As of September 30, 2015, the game has sold 5.87 million copies worldwide)
(LoZ:TP sold 5.82 million copies on the Wii as of March 31, 2011, and 1.32 million on the GameCube as of March 31, 2007. WW = 7.14 millions)


EDIT: ...and on NX 5 million WW .

It could, it really depends if it comes or not on the NX as well as on Wii U...

Only if they release both WiiU and NX versions at the same time. And even then, it's going to be difficult surpass Twilight Princess, impossible without that double release.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

If it's a double release than it's possible. But there's no way they're selling over 8 million copies just on the WiiU.

Have some time to kill? Read my shitty games blog.


If it's Wii U only, I highly doubt it.

I come back onto the site again to have a look around...glad to see Spurge's crazy predictions are still a thing ;)

Nah, the likeliness of that happening is very slim. Nintendo would have to bundle it with every Wii U, do a ton of adverts and set up lots of promotional events to even have a chance of that happening, and even then, with the Wii U's installbase it would be incredibly difficult.
