- The Legend of Zelda : Link's Awakening scores the #2 best launch of the year, only behind KH3's 59.000 units sold on PS4.
- It is the #4 best launch for a Switch game, only behind Pokemon, Smash and SMO.
- 2.5 years later, another Zelda is at #5 with BotW closing to 300k units sold on Switch in Spain

- Great launch for the Lite with 7.550 units sold (3400 turquoise, 2100 grey, 2050 yellow).
- Low cannibalization on the OG which sold 3.400 units this week. That puts the total at about 11.000 Switch sold during that week.
- Other hardware sales during the week : PS4 - 2800 ; XB1 - 600

In the light of this, Holidays are expected to be incredibly strong this year for Nintendo both for hardware and software. Congrats for Grezzo and Nintendo !

Oh so the 4500+ number for the Lite which was posted a few days ago was wrong? Even better as this is a nice launch.

Also go Zelda.

I’m really happy this game is doing so well. Link’s Awakening is a very special game.

Spain has become a really strong market for Nintendo with the Switch. It's kind of cool.

That's a shockingly good debut week. Zelda has come a long way in a short amount of time.

whoaaaaa!
that's massive. well-deserved tho, game is fantastic. looks like botw got a good bump as well.
curious to see how well DQXI S can do in spain. is the series popular there?

edit: and another market where the non-remastered version of NNK1 sold more than the remaster.

It launched higher than BOTW? guess that's just because of launch constraints. I wonder if this is true for other regions.

What does the above statement mean? I'm having a bit of a brainfart.

It's a fantastic game and well deserved even with the shaky framerate. It would be nice if it receives an optimization patch eventually but even now it's well worth playing.

Sekiro should be there with 14k, unless the number wasn't correct.
