Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has shipped over three million units, Koei Tecmo has revealed.
It should be noted that the figure is based on total copies shipped and not sold.
If anyone doesn’t know the ‘shipped’ figure usually refers to the game units that the publisher sends to retailers. While the ‘sold’ figure is based on units that those same retailers have sold through to consumers.
The Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity figure includes both physical shipments and digital sales.
The second entry in the Hyrule Warriors series now holds the record for the single best-selling title within the publisher’s Warriors series.
Just looking at the numbers alone, it’s quite telling that the collaboration between Nintendo and Koei Temco has been good business for both companies.
The question if it will lead anywhere, be it through supporting the game after release like through DLC like the original they did with the original Hyrule Warriors.
Right now it’s too early to speculate a possible Hyrule Warriors 3, but I like to imagine that is a conversation that could happen sometime down the line.
Anyone interested in the November 20th released game can check Bobby’s review who says the game has “… a great roster of characters, great combat, and some great ideas that stick the landing.”
You can also try it out for yourself by downloading the free demo through the Nintendo eShop. Any progress in the Switch demo can be transferred to the full release version.
