The Legend of Zelda: Tears of The Kingdom Hits 10 Million Sales in Just 3 Days

In a landscape marked by blockbuster releases and high-profile launches, Nintendo‘s The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has emerged as a behemoth, setting a record that is as impressive as it is unprecedented.

In just three days following its release, Tears of the Kingdom has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. This staggering figure not only makes it the fastest-selling game in the history of the Legend of Zelda series, but perhaps also the fastest-selling console exclusive in history.

Nintendo of America revealed the impressive achievement via their official Twitter account, expressing gratitude to the millions of gamers already embarking on Link’s latest adventure.

The scale of this accomplishment comes into sharp relief when placed in the context of other high-profile game launches. The game is a Switch exclusive, an important detail when comparing sales figures. Other best-selling games typically launch across multiple platforms, such as Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Despite this, Tears of the Kingdom has outpaced the initial sales of notable games like God of War Ragnarok, The Last of Us, and Horizon Forbidden West.

In an era where subscription services are reshaping the landscape of game sales, Nintendo’s success with a single-platform game is a testament to the enduring appeal of the Zelda franchise and the exemplary quality of Tears of the Kingdom.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
