The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is good for people, Nintendo says.
The Japanese company recently announced on Twitter that Tears of the Kingdom is the fastest-selling game in the history of the Zelda series, as it crossed the 10 million sales mark in just three days. In a separate press release, Nintendo stated that Tears of the Kingdom sold over four million copies in the US alone, making it the fastest-selling Nintendo game ever in that region.

At this rate, it is only a matter of time before the work surpasses the sales figures of the previous part, because The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which appeared six years ago on Switch and Wii U, had sold approximately 29.81 million copies as of March 2023.
