Very impressive, especially considering it’s just the Switch version and only retail physical copies.

I wonder how many digital were sold as well.

Well deserved. Incredible game

Amazing! Gunna replay it on hard mode soon and can't wait for DLC!

Not bad for a new system. That's probably, roughly, half of all Switch owners. Not a bad pull at all.

Wii U version sold over 1 million

I wouldn’t call 1,181,373 “well over 1 million.” That’s not even anywhere close to 2 million

Breath of the Wild on Wii U sold over a million in its first month (including digital, I believe), it's been 8 months since then. It's likely at 1.5-2 million now.

So around 6 or 7 counting wiiu and digital

The 10th Rider1053d ago

It was a 4.7 million on September 30th on Switch, physical+ digital. Nintendo hasn't given official numbers for Wii U in a while, but we know it hit 1 million shortly after launch. It was likely at 6 million Wii U + Switch + digital all the way back at the end of September. After the Black Friday rush I'm sure sales for all version combined are past 7 million.
