The news: Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sold 10 million copies globally in its first three days, making it the fastest-selling game for the Nintendo Switch, per IGN.
Why it’s worth watching: The sales milestone also makes Tears of the Kingdom the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch game in the Americas and the fastest-selling Nintendo title on any system released in the region.
Video games show resilience: In 2022, we estimated that more than half (54.2%) of the US population were digital gamers.
Gaming changer: Tears of the Kingdom’s early success bucks the trend favoring cloud and streaming games over consoles and shows that beloved intellectual property and AAA game releases can sustain aging hardware and even lead to sales of older, related games.
