The Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Reaches New Milestone!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is without a doubt among the most popular titles of recent memory. In fact, its success still echoes today despite the arrival of newer, interesting games. This only goes to show what kind of developers are behind it. This is clearly backed by the fact that the game's sales are still soaring high.

Last February, Ubisoft's For Honor dominated the sales chart for the month February. Now, for the month of March 2017, it is still from the studio -- particularly the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Interestingly, it's being followed by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as reported by IGN.

Why this is actually surprising? Well, that's because Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild didn't even have digital sales; Or, in a much better explanation, these weren't accounted in the tally made by NPD. It is worth noting that during the first 28 weeks of the release of Nintendo Switch, more than 906,000 consoles were sold. Add to this the fact that there were around 925,000 copies of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sold, too.

With the aforementioned figures, there is no doubt the game is on a different kind of success. As a matter of fact, it's been given the highest rate for "any non-bundled title." Take note, this was released on a new hardware since NPD's tracking back in 1995. NPD also iterated that the month of March is deemed as the month Nintendo broke records.

In related news, Digital Trends reports that one of the characters in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has an interesting discovery. It's no other than Ganondorf who, believe it or not, comes with a last name. The main villain has been baptized by Nintendo with a last name -- Dragmire, that is. The surname appears on the official online guide of the game, and it separates Ganondorf from its beastly form.
