The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

Earlier this evening, the NPD Group issued the monthly U.S. chart for game sales in March. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Pokken Tournament both made the list, coming in at the third and seventh positions respectively. But how much did each game sell?

Based on the usual leaks, it looks like Twilight Princess HD sold about 308,000 copies. Pokken Tournament also did quite well with roughly 251,000 units moved.

We have some data on the 3DS side of things as well. Hyrule Warriors Legends is said to have sold about 72,000 copies. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which also launched last month, sold 25,000 copies or so.


Media Create shared debut sales for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD in Japan earlier this week. Between March 10 and March 13, it moved 52,282 copies. Media Create now has more information about the game’s performance.

Zelda: Twilight Princess HD ended up selling through 56.82 percent of its initial shipment. The sales tracker notes that the title is off to a bit of a slow start. On Wii, Twilight Princess sold 139,000 units in its first week, of which the new HD version sold roughly 40 percent of.
