Some fun sales tidbits made it out of Nintendo overnight as the company released its financial results for the fiscal year ending March 2018, from raised Switch sale expectations to Super Mario Odysseyclearing 10 million copies sold to the SNES Classic moving 5.28 million units. Here's another one to note: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wildis the top-selling Zeldagame.
Nintendo has reported 8.48 million sales for Breath of the Wildon the Switch, and there's also the Wii U version to think about, which brings an additional 1.5 million sales. That total beats out Twilight Princess' combined 8.85 million sales across the GameCube and Wii. (The conversation gets a little trickier when you take Ocarina of Timeand its various incarnations into consideration.)
On Switch, Breath of the Wildis surpassed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe(9.22 million) and Super Mario Odyssey(10.41 million), but still -- heck of a payoff for a beloved series that took deliberate risks.
