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

Accounting for digital, it's probably a 1 million advantage for BotW.



Around the Network

Zelda BotW is on good way to be 1st 10m Zelda game.



Honestly, I think it could do 11-12 million on the Switch alone.

Yeah, Im thinking that too. We should know better around December.



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

BOTW will only sell 10 million if the Switch ends up being as or almost as successful as the Wii was. Bundles and price drops will definitely do justice in any case :)

It's also helpful that BOTW wasn't overshadowed by the motion control crap that was 1-2 Switch as Twilight Princess was with Wii Sports. I'm hoping Nintendo has completely disbanded from advertising that game now.

Updated with week 15 and Nintendo's official figures!

The gap grew in favor of Breath of the Wild once more. As usual, this trend shall continue next week when Twilight Princess (Wii) drops to ~48k.

Fun fact: According to Nintendo's figures, Breath of the Wild's (Switch) first 4 months nearly matches Twilight Princess' (Wii) first full year on the market.

Sorry for keep you waiting! I was very busy, but now everything is ok.

Updated with weeks 16, 17, 18 and 19!

The gap grew in favor of Breath of the Wild by ~14k only. There were some flat weeks, but things started to get better last week and this trend will probably carry to the following week.

Updated with week 20!

Breath of the Wild keeps stretching its lead over Twilight Princess (this week, by 15k). The gap is now at 600k. The trend should continue over the next week.

Thanks for keeping this updated!



It´s going to have a little boost on week 21 because of the release of Splatoon :)
