We previously heard that The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was the fastest-selling Switch game in the UK of 2019 to date. The same can now be said for Europe as a whole. Nintendo itself confirmed the news on Twitter today.

Nintendo has not yet shared information about the performance of Zelda: Link’s Awakening in North America. However, we do know that it opened with around 150,000 copies sold in its first week in Japan.
