Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity sold three million copies at launch

Earlier this year, Nintendo announced that it would once again be teaming up with Koei Tecmo Games, this time for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game has only been out for a short time but it is already shaping up to be one of the biggest games on Switch this holiday season. 

As reported by Famitsu, Koei Tecmo Games has announced that over three million copies of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity have been sold over its launch weekend. That number includes both physical and digital copies sold worldwide.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is also the best selling Musou game to date, beating out other notable examples like the original Hyrule Warriors or Fire Emblem: Warriors.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a hack and slash game, in which you take on the role of various characters and take on huge hordes of enemies, clearing out the battlefield as you go. In this particular instance, the story ties in with Breath of the Wild, showing players how Hyrule ended up being in the state it was in Breath of the Wild. Nintendo is also developing a direct sequel to Breath of the Wild, which is rumoured to be coming in 2021.
