BREATH OF THE WILD Has Officially Become The Best-Selling THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Game In The U.S.

Nintendo's critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has officially become the best-selling title in the long-running The Legend of Zelda series in the United States.

It seems as if The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild can't catch a break — obviously, in a good way — when it comes to making Nintendo reach new milestones. Upon release, the game was met with nothing but praise from critics and fans of the The Legend of Zelda series; winning, even, Game of the Year at the 2017 The Game Awards.

Back in September of last year, it was also revealed that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had become the best-selling title in the The Legend of Zelda series — when it came to 3D games, that is — with over 1.25 million copies sold; beating out the record holder, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, that had been in the top position since 1998.

NPD Group analyst Mat Piscatella reveals that Nintendo's critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now, officially, the best-selling title in the long-running The Legend of Zelda series in the United States; with Twilight Princess, Ocarina of Time, and Majora's Mask, and — surprisingly enough — Link's Crossbow Training in the second, third, fourth, and fifth positions respectively. 

While we don't have exact numbers for these titles, it is still quite interesting to see that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has managed to achieve this much in such a short period of time. It is also worth mentioning that, with the exception of Link's Crossbow Training, all of these games have been re-released on other consoles, making us want to know more about sales numbers for each of these titles.
