The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games ever made, and after 60 hours of playing it on the Nintendo Switch, it comes as no surprise the BotW is the best-selling game on the Nintendo Switch.


In the US alone, Nintendo have sold 906,000 consoles in March, while 925,000 copies of Breath of the Wild were sold. The Wii U version of the game sold 460,000 copies, with Breath of the Wild hitting 1.3 million copies sold so far. This makes Zelda: Breath of the Wild the fastest-selling Nintendo launch game of all time, and the fastest-selling The Legend of Zelda game of all time.
