The Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword HD is the 4th Zelda game to reach No. 1.
Sales have been promising and it may well have surpassed the original sales of Skyward Sword on Wii.
Skyward Sword follows in the footsteps of a selected few Zelda games to reach No. 1 from Launch. 1998 on the N64, Ocarina of Time, 2003 with Windwaker and 2019 with Link’s Awakening.
Skyward Sword did sell slightly better than Link’s Awakening at launch. 1.3% higher in fact, so minimal margins. Boxed sales of Skyward Sword HD were 9% fewer than compared to the original Skyward Sword back in 2011. Remember, this isn’t taking into account digital sales for the HD version, so this explains the HD has ‘potentially’ surpassed original sales.
