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

I have to bump this up my buddy chart.



Around the Network

BOTW sales holding up well even in Japan. Very nice to see.

Wii U in japan + Switch + digital for the game..wouldn’t be surprised if it was 800k japan or near that already



Amazing performance.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


Breath of the Wild is doing great and will probably have legs for years.



600 k Switch physical+ 50k Switch Digital+ 150 k Wii U physical +???? Wii U digital>800k

Updated with week 26!

Breath of the Wild keeps stretching its lead; this week by 10k.



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

Thanks Lipe!



So 4.7m units by the end of September for the Switch version of BOTW, Wii U version according to VGC is 1.1m, In total BOTW is at 5.7m making it the 4th best selling Zelda game and this has been managed in 6 months.

Updated with weeks 27, 28 and Nintendo's official figures.

The gap grew a bit these past 2 weeks in favor o BotW, but they tied last week. The gap should grow again next week when Botw is expected to do a bit better.

According to Nintendo tho... BotW (Switch) already surpassed Twilight Princess' (Wii) first full year in under 7 months.

BotW Switch: 4.7m
BotW Switch: 1m (as of March 2017, so it's certainly higher than this)

So, according to Nintendo, BotW is already around 6m. Let's remember it's still to experience its first holiday and is far from turning 1 year old. The road to March 03 shall be extremely interesting!
