Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sells faster than any Nintendo game in history
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has become the fastest-selling Nintendo game of all time.
The latest game in the Legend of Zelda series has smashed sales records, truly living up to the hype as one of the most anticipated games in years. Tears of the Kingdom on the Nintendo Switch has become the fastest-selling Nintendo videogame of all time.
It hit the shelves on 12 May and sold 10 million copies in its first three days to snatch the record title previously held by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in 2018. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, for the Nintendo Switch, held the record shortly after its release in December of that year by selling 12.08 million copies in 24 days.
Before that, the fastest-selling game from Nintendo was New Super Mario Bros. for Wii in 2009. That one sold 1.4 million copies in its first week of sales and 10.5 million by the eighth week.
