Nintendo has revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the fastest-selling Zelda game of all time. Since launch, 535,000 copies of the game have been sold in the United States alone.
The numbers were boosted by strong sales over the holiday weekend, with 500,000 Wii systems sold on Black Friday. Sales of 3DS were also strong, up 325% since the first week of November. This is largely thanks to sales of Super Mario 3D Land, which has sold 500,000 copies since launch, becoming the fastest-selling portable Mario title ever.
